Help Us To See Each Other Clearly (Luke 4:14-30)

You have made us in your image,
but we wear many masks to those around us.
We are the child, the parent, the friend, the boss, the stranger.
We change depending on our circumstances.

We are your children, Lord.
You have anointed us with your spirit
and have sent us to do your work.
You have made us in your image,
but we see each other through the lens of our lives,
through our experiences.

Help us to see each other clearly.
Help us to see the face of God in the faces of those around us.
Help us to recognize when you are among us, to see those God moments.

You have made us in your image.
You have sent your Son to teach us.
As we look at those among us in this sacred place,
we see our brothers and sisters in Christ.
In this sacred place, we see the hands that do your work.
In this sacred place, we hear the stories of our ancestors and the teachings that you have shared.
From this sacred place, we move out into the world
to use our backs to carry the load of those who are the weakest among us.

Help us to see each other clearly.
Help us to see the face of God in the faces of those around us.
Help us to recognize when you are among us, to see those God moments.

We are your children, Lord, and we know that you are with us always.
Be with those among us who need your strength and healing grace the most.
We name___
You have made us in your image and sent your Son to teach us these words,
“Our Father…”
