Prayer as I reflect on all the people you place in my life today.

I think about my family, my relatives, the neighbors, people with whom we will spend this day. Dear Jesus, as I look at their faces and remember their stories, there are feelings of gratitude and some fear and anxiety.  Thank you for these loved ones and please forgive me for the ways I have been less than accepting and loving.  Please heal the wounds, division and conflicts that stand between us and help me to remember how dearly you love them.  I only want to remember that you have come to save us all.
