A Prayer for Friday, May 29, 2015


O God,

Give us grace to see beyond.

Give us grace to see beyond

our experience,
our ethnicity,
our religion,
our nationality,
our borders,
our politics,
our lifetime,
our perspectives,
our prejudices,
our assumptions,

that we might catch a glimpse

of the wider world with all of its
fascinating people, histories, and cultures,

of the many ways that you
work through and in them,

of the wonders of an
ever-expanding worldview,


of the eternity that, if we stand on
our tiptoes and stretch as high and far as we can,
we just might possibly, with your help,
just barely be able to see.
