Prayer for July 19: Please pray with me. God who invites the innocent in, forgive us when we judge and separate others. We so desperately want to claim the right to judge others – why? To make ourselves feel good, to cover our own sin and guilt? To hide the rejection we have felt or are feeling? Help us to identify with the others we would rather judge. Help us to see ourselves in them. Help us to see that there is no them at all. Amen.
