From today’s Lectio 365 devotional:
“Father God, as millions of people gather in Your House to eat at Your table today, may we be a family defined by its kindness towards everyone.
Jesus, we pray for those who are lonely or on the margins today, and especially for those who are attending church for the first time or the last time. May they find themselves noticed and loved.
And for those who are nowhere near a church meeting today, send us out to bring the prodigals home.
Holy Spirit, revive Your church today. Form us into the most welcoming and diverse community on earth that the world may see Your love, believe in Your mercy, and receive Your invitation home. Amen.”
