Prayer of the Day: 'Reverence for Life'
God of life, every act of violence between ourselves and others destroys a part of your creation. Stir in our hearts a renewed sense of reverence for all life. Give us vision to recognize your spirit in every human being, however they behave toward us. Make possible the impossible by cultivating in us the fertile seed of healing love. May we play a part in breaking the cycle of violence by realizing that peace begins with us.
