Faith can be elusive at times in this world when we knock up against bad choices, persecution or tragedy. Yet Christ loves us perfectly and knows we are but a wonderful work to be completed through Him. No matter how crooked our paths may be or how far we may sometimes wander from Him, He is always there waiting to welcome us home. Grace in Progress: Prayers for the Beautifully Broken will help you find the heart within your heart, where your story of grace begins, and discover where Christ most needs to abide in your life. These prayers will encourage you to trust God more, rely on your own ways less and embrace the depth of God’s love in the ordinary moments of your life.
Grace in Progress: Prayers for the Beautifully Broken is a collection of prayers intended for individuals seeking a spiritual enrichment of their prayer life. This book was created for men, women, and teens who struggle with accepting God’s grace and speaking to Jesus in prayer. Grace in Progress contains 21 prayers, and a reflection from the author on her own personal story of finding and accepting God’s grace and letting go of the vicious cycle of fear, regret, and self-hate through prayer.
