Good Samaritan Prayer

Here’s a prayer inspired by Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 25-37).

(inspired by Luke 10:25-37)

Heavenly Father,
we know that You have made us for Yourself,
to love You and to love our neighbors.
Yet still we cannot help but live for ourselves,
and every day we justify ourselves by our own standards, not Yours.
But Lord, you have found us in the ditch,
and You have rescued us.
Now soften our hearts to Your will,
and make us to love others as You have loved us;
especially those who are most in need, whom we pass by every day.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
