A Prayer of Hope: December 3
Let us pray:
God of the whole world
You have commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves
Help us to do that all over the world
Help me understand the problems our siblings are going through and find ways to help them in ways they need it most
Help us to love others no matter what their race or other ethnicities
Help us to honor cultures we may not understand
Help me to receive their love as well
Help us not permit distance or difference to stop us from giving or receiving love
Written by Rev. Traci D. Blackmon, associate general minister, justice and local church ministries
