Prayer for December 12

Prayer for December 12: Please pray with me.  God of all people, today we pray for clarity of sight.  We don’t ask, nor should we ask, to always be right.  Frankly, that’s arrogant.  Instead, help us to see the people around us.  Open our eyes to see that the issues we debate and fight about are attached to people – real people with real lives.  So often we separate the issues from the outcome and how these things impact people’s lives.  And in so doing, we fool ourselves into thinking decisions only affect faceless, nameless people who aren’t like us.  The reality is that all decisions impact us as well.  They either fortify us and keep us safe from others or they open our eyes to see others as human beings.  Help us to see.  Amen.
