Prayers for Peacemakers, November 7, 2012

Ask God for eyes to see, appreciate,
honor and acknowledge lavish giving by people others habitually use, impoverish,
objectify, take advantage of, slight, mistrust, second-guess, one-up,
doubt, fear, ignore, tolerate, patronize, pity or pigeonhole. Ask that defensiveness may give way
to mutuality.
