God of all people, we thank you for the gifts you give each one of us to serve in the name of Jesus Christ. Help us to care for and love one another, especially those whom we may view as lesser than ourselves. Help us to see each other’s minds, bodies, and hearts as beautiful in their own ways, as we seek to create a church without barriers of any kind. May we see one another as your beloved children, each needed to participate in your mission of love and justice in our world. Amen.
This prayer is an excerpt of “Belonging to the body of Christ” by Lisa Heffernan in Café’s February 2019 Faith Reflections.
