God of abundance, you pour out on us a lavish feast for which we are thankful.
Bless us by the presence of those who do not feel your welcome so readily. Offer your cloak of gracious love and mercy through us this day.
Guard us from our prejudices and keep us from our judgements. Here, together, open our hearts and minds to the great celebration you offer to each and every one. Amen
Thanks to Rev. Jane Gingrich (Hills of Peace Lutheran Church, Kamloops) for contributing this week’s prayer.
