Prayer for October 20

Prayer for October 20: Please pray with me. God of welcome, you call to us to communicate your message of Good News to many around us.  So many walk in the darkness of this world.  Yet, your message is a light to the world.  Open our eyes to see those around us that need to hear your message.  Open our arms to welcome those who need to be accompanied.  Open our ears to hear the stories of the lives we connect with.  Open our hearts to welcome people – as they are, not to change them into us.  Open our minds, and tear down our defenses that try to make others conform to us.  Help us to know that every time someone new enters our community, the community changes.  Amen.
