Prayer for November 5: Please pray with me. Holy One, open our eyes to see through the lens you give us – faith. Open our eyes to see you in the other – both our neighbors that we love and the enemies that we struggle with and even hate or hate us. Open our eyes to see the world the way you see it. Open our eyes to see the injustice, fear, hate, and anxiety that is spread through our land like a disease. Open our eyes to see how unnecessary it is. And when you are done opening our eyes to see all of this – open our hearts, soften them. Open our hearts to be embraced by you. Open our hearts to encounter you. Open our hands to feed the hungry and thirsty. Open our hands to clothe the naked. Open our hands to welcome the stranger. Open our hands to comfort the sick. Open our hands to pray for our enemies. Open us Lord. Tear down the walls that we build to separate ourselves from others and you. Open us. Amen.
