Blessed he who keeps faith forever, secures justice for the oppressed, gives food to the hungry. Psalm 146
That We May See God in Others
Lord God, I ask forgiveness for all the times in my life where I have failed to do the good that I should have done. I am sorry for the times that I have failed to see another person as one who is made in your image and likeness and deserving of my respect and love. I ask you to send your Holy Spirit upon me, the Spirit of mercy, to soften my hard heart. Help me to recognize your presence in my life and in the lives of others. This prayer I humbly make in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.
