A Prayer for This Hour
you have welcomed us into your kingdom
and your hearts’ desire is to draw every human being to yourself.
Grant us clear eyes to see people as you see them,
sensitive feet to stand in their shoes,
and warm smiles to welcome them into your name.
Give us generous hearts
that our church becomes a foretaste of heaven
where every soul you send us
finds their loving home in the community of your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.
Prayer from Mauritius, The Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean
