A Prayer for Friday, August 19, 2016


O God,

Make us able and willing to imagine that the children dying in Aleppo are our children, that the girls kidnapped in Nigeria are our daughters, and that the homes flooded in Louisiana and burned in California are our homes.

Let our imagining lead us to have compassion.

Let our compassion lead us to pray.

Let our prayers lead us to action.

Let our actions lead us to a greater sense of commonality and community.
