A Prayer for inlusion


This is the prayer Inclusive Church uses. While Inclusive Church has an LGBT emphasis, it is a prayer for the inclusion of ALL. I think the challenge is to recognise for ourselves who the excluded are. It may be a very individual thing.

All-loving God, we thank you for the Good News
of your love for us. Help us to resist building walls around the Gospel - walls to make us safe, 
walls to exclude others. Give us the vision 
to break down every barrier that divides us from one another
and from you.
