Prayer and Reflection
Lord Jesus Christ,
in you we know the love of God.
When we gather together in your name
we experience the marvel of your loving presence which challenges us to live for one another.
Help us to follow your example
so that we may never become complacent. Help us to listen to your constant call to us to continue the work you began,
you who lived and died for us.
Grant this through your Spirit of Love. Amen. (Prayer for Unity of Christians)
Being thoughtful for life, for people and gifts, is a vital part
of our relationships with one another. When praise and appreciation are experienced, we are enabled to relate on a deeper level.
Recall a time when you were thanked. How was the gratitude expressed?
How did you feel?
How are relationships deepened in everyday life?
