John 13:1-17, 31-35
O God, open our eyes to see examples of servant leadership in our midst. Increase our care and compassion. Encourage us to be of service, to see where there is need and to respond. Strengthen and empower us to do more, to reach out, to move from apathy to empathy, and to follow Jesus today and each and every day. Amen.
As Jesus surprised Peter by washing his feet, we might be surprised by those who join in Lenten practices to be in solidarity with their Christian neighbors: http://www.eidpraylove.com/
How does faith lead you to connect with others in love and service?
