Jesus, You are the relational God,
You make yourself known.
You touched lepers, had dinner with sinners and spent time with the marginalised.
Lord, help us to be open to all people,
whoever they are,
Wherever they have come from.
Jesus, help us to be kind, caring, supportive and encouraging.
Help us to invest in others.
May we build good and lasting friendships.
May those we meet experience Your love and goodness through how we act towards them,
That Your kingdom may come.
In Jesus’ name,

Fred Drummond, director of prayer and Scotland
