#40WordPrayer on DOORS

“When once the owner of the house has got up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then in reply he will say to you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’”
— Luke 13:25

When we shut the door on those who seek entry,

God, forgive us.

When we fail to recognize stranger as kin,

God, forgive us.

When we keep people in the cold who need to know warmth,

God, forgive us.

God, forgive us and make us anew.

Amen.
