In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
When Jesus says: "Do to others as you would wish them do to you." Mt. 7:12 (the Golden Rule) We can ask ourselves how we have acted towards one another in the past, the present, and what will our future look like?
We pray: Help us, God, to remember this Golden Rule, and have the courage to treat each other and all peoples with respect. Through our actions, all will come to know you as a God of love and justice…or not.
Let us also keep in our prayers all dealing with addictions, the users and others in their circle of friends and care givers. Today we pray for all who are living with the addiction's fallout from Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
Let us pray with the words that Jesus taught all of God's children:
Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
We move into our day in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
