A prayer for how I err

Help me remember, God:

you are not a doctrine,

you are not a denomination,

you are not anger,

you are not hate,

you are not violation and violence,

you are love.

As I live, God, I

I know I will fall short.

I will err.

Guide me so that when I err, I do so

on the side of welcome,

on the side of inclusion,

on the side of justice and mercy,

on the side of equity,

on the side of grace

on the side of love.

I pray in the name of Jesus.

Amen.
