Prayer to the Father of Us All

In your presence, O God, I cannot think only of myself, but also of others:
Of my friends;
Of those with whom I work;
Of those who are in sorrow;
Of those who are bearing the burdens of others;
Of those who are working in lonely outposts of your kingdom.
You are the one God and Father of us all; be near us.

Amen.
––Adapted from a Diary of Private Prayer by John Baillie
