A Prayer for Saturday, February 1, 2014


O God,

Remind us that when we touch someone, we leave a mark.

If our touch hurts,
we leave a scar—
a reminder of the pain that we inflicted.

If our touch helps,
we leave an impression—
a reminder of the care we provided.

If we don’t touch,
we leave nothing—
a reminder that we did nothing.

Give us grace to touch others and to do so in ways
that help
that don’t hurt.
