Prayer of the Week

Heart Prints

Whatever our hands touch, we leave fingerprints.
On walls, on furniture, on doorknobs, dishes, books.
There is no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.
And so we pray – wherever we go, God, help us leave
heart prints!
Heart prints of compassion, of acceptance,
of welcome, understanding and love.
Heart prints of kindness and genuine concern and care.
May our hearts touch each other.
Send us, God, to leave heart prints.
And if others say, “I felt your touch,”
may they sense Your love touching them through us!
