Prayer for June 12

Prayer for June 12: Please pray with me.  God who welcomes people.  Too often we set up barriers and find ways to keep people away – away from you.  Away from each other.  We feel safe and superior when we can make people into “others.”  But if we dig deep enough, we realize that we are an “other” to someone else too.  Why do we spend so much time, energy, effort, and resources to push people away.  This is costly in so many ways.  And it ignores what you call on us to do – to welcome people.  How can we possibly love others when we push them away?  Turn us from building walls of separation, to instead opening pathways to people.  Amen.
