Most of us will encounter people today; some of us will encounter one or two people and others of us will encounter hundreds of them. We will encounter some people in passing; we will barely notice some; we will speak briefly to some; we will engage in deep conversation with others.
Some of our encounters will be positive experiences; some will not be.
Help us, insofar as it is possible for us, to encounter people as they really are and not as they present themselves to be and not as we judge them to be.
Help us, guided by your Spirit, to see the people we encounter as you see them and to love them as you love them.
And help us to be reflective and self-aware enough to be who we really are as we encounter and deal with other people.
