Who speak of you in ways that bruise us – Lord’s Prayer 03.10.2011

Father, you are so far beyond us
and yet beside us.
Send your spirit on us to see the world with your eyes,
to meet you in all we meet.
Light for us the next step on our path
though we don’t know where we are going.
Cause us to let go of our prejudices
against those of your children
who meet you differently to the way we meet you
and speak of you in ways that trouble us
and even bruise us;
find in our hearts the will to release them from the box we have put them in
and show it to us.
Sometimes life feels more than we can take;
free us from the weight of our own expectation
and our fear of all we cannot be.
Lead us towards the day
when you and we are one.
In the strong name of Jesus,
who teaches us how to see.
Amen.
