Grace is a spiritual term found in many religious traditions. In general, it refers to a divine blessing or influence that is passed on to a person either by a divinity or secondary sanctified person to bring about spiritual strength and inner peace. Though some argue that grace can be built up through merit or meeting certain criteria, the predominant belief is that grace cannot be attained by personal effort, but only received with gratitude when offered.
