Loving God, You call us into fellowship with one another throughout Scripture as a vision of Your heavenly kingdom.
Draw together your children to be a
people united by Love of You and each
other, no matter what Name they call You by. Help us nurture the seeds
of compassion in our hearts. Grant that we embrace our common humanity
and see Christ in each person we encounter, in their joys, sorrows,
poverty, and anxieties. Give us the will to work for each other and
stand by each other, knit together as one family before You.
blessing and comfort over those whose needs we lift up before You.
