A Prayer for Neighbors

Here’s a prayer for neighbors, strangers and immigrants from  Nathan Nettleton. It was adapted from a longer prayer and posted on Acts of Faith.

A Prayer for Neighbors

We thank you, God,
for coming to us as a neighbor, a stranger, an immigrant,
binding our wounds and carrying us to safety,
so that we might love you with all our heart, soul, and mind,
and welcome the stranger,
loving our neighbor as ourselves.
