Prayer for Tuesday, March 24

Day 24 : Don’t play favorites

Scripture for reflection: James 2:1-13

Prayer: I come in confession today, O God.
I have at times played favourites. I have exalted those who are successful and
powerful. I have subtly excluded people who are not ‘lovely’ and put my efforts
into avoiding those with whom I feel uncomfortable. I look at the example of Jesus
and the way he included all people, the way he reached out and touched the
untouchables, the way he challenged those with influence. I ask your forgiveness
for my weakness and my imperfect love. Help me to be like Jesus. Amen.
