Submit Prayer Request

11 October 2019

Dear Prayer Partners,

Sunday’s gospel reading is familiar. Ten lepers ask for healing, yet after being healed only one returns to give thanks and praise: the foreigner/Samaritan! I think Jesus understood what it was like to be a “foreigner” and realized what being both leper and Samaritan meant.  He was not accepted in any group really.  However, God our Father sees all as his children and seeks to respond to all his childrens’ requests. Good thing God is not like us! Let us pray for openness of heart and mind to respond to the foreigner among us.
