The Daily Prayer
SUNDAY, July 5, 2020
Hear this proverb often quoted by John Perkins, pioneer of Christian community development:
Go to the people, Live among them, Learn from them, Love them. Start with what they know, Build on what they have: But of the best leaders, When their task is done, The people will remark, “We have done it ourselves.”
Lord God, grant us grace to be faithful witnesses to those we encounter today. May we share your love in a way that sparks others to catch your fire. Amen.
