Prayer

Only human

Only human 

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8; NIV).

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12; NIV).

The King will reply, ‘Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’ (Matthew 25:40; NIV).

He will reply, ‘Truly, I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me’ (Matthew 25:45; NIV).

Father,
We are only human.

We are fragile and vulnerable,
Easily damaged
In body, mind and soul.

     Lord, heal us.

Father,
We are only human.

We damage others, too,
By accident,
By not caring,
And even by design.

     Lord, forgive us.

Father,
We are only human.

Help us to start our lives afresh
By offering love
To everyone we meet,
And serving Christ in them.

     Lord, restore us.

We ask this in His precious name,
Amen.
