INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PRAYER: Close your eyes. Remember a time when you needed someone’s help because you were hurt, worried, or struggling. Remember someone who helped you. How did you feel when you received help? Now bring these feelings to God as we pray this prayer.

Loving God,

You created us as sisters and brothers, a family that cares for one another.

Thank you for the people in our lives who look out for us, and take care of us when we are hurt or in need.

Help us to put others first, especially those people most in need around the world. Inspire us to show them the love that we receive from others.
