Prayer for April 28: Please pray with me. God of wisdom, today we pray for a listening ear. Help us to be more concerned with finding what makes us similar, rather than what divides and separates us. Help us to recognize that people come to their differing conclusions for reasons that make sense to them. Help us to listen first, to respond in love and to leave divisiveness, labeling and the desire to always be right behind us. Help us to know that every issue we debate is really about actual people, not just abstract policies and ideas. Amen.
