Lord Jesus, lead us to grow in your image and become more fully human. Lead us to respect and value all other people that we may work together for justice for all and the building of your kingdom. Amen.
Father, help us to see and love in others what you see and love in them. Amen.
Lord, I pray for gifts and talents that will help me and other people. As I pray for these gifts I know, too, that I will need to work hard at developing them - to become more patient, - to grow in wisdom, - and to be faithful in friendship. May I be as faithful to others as you are to me. Amen.
