A Prayer for the New Year

The Woman of Samaria ~ John 4

O Lord, You were so often accused of associating with the wrong people. Help me to understand that there are no "wrong" people. Everyone I meet matters to You and therefore must be treated with love and respect. This is the wonder of Your grace, that You reach out to those with the worst reputations ~~those who need You most ~ and call them to follow You. Place your compassion in my heart for all who cross my path, so that I may see them through your eyes and speak Your words of grace to them. Amen

  1. Amen. Expand our definition of "friend" Lord. Help us to befriend the unwanted and the unlovely.
