A Prayer for Thursday, January 23, 2014


O God,

Give us patience and perspective to see beneath the surface

of situations
of reactions
of positions

whether they belong to us or to someone else

so that we will not

jump to conclusions
make snap judgments
perpetuate stereotypes

but will rather pursue and see more of

the truth that is

rather than

the “truth” that is

put forth
hoped for and
clung to.
