Dear Jesus,

I get discouraged when I see people,
communities, nations that cannot or do not
want to get along with one another. 
When I look into my own heart I can see
my own biases and resentments. 
Bring healing to our brokenness.
Let us experience the joy of showing respect,
of being open to different views,
of growing together rather than apart.

Amen.

— By a Columban Missionary
