The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and 
sisters of mine, you did for me.” - Matthew 25:40 (NIV)

Today's Prayer
Dear Father, help us always remember your command to love our neighbors as ourselves. Continue to fill us with compassion for the least among us. As Jesus taught us, we pray, “Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation (Luke 11:2-4, niv). Amen.

Respond by posting a prayer.

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
