Prayer for January 24: Please pray with me. God of mercy, help us to be merciful to others. Help us to see that how we treat others is a reflection on ourselves. Help us to know that what we say about others is an echo about ourselves. When we speak in fear of others, it says we are fear-filled. When we label others, it says that we can’t see the humanity of another person. When we seek to divide, it says that we feel threatened. Holy One, radically reorient us to seek out the best of others – even our enemies. To see their humanity. To see them through the lens of you. Amen.
