Protecting the vulnerable

2013 Advent good_news_hi_res  Matthew 1:18-25

Prayer for the day:

Protecting God,
I ask for seeing eyes to take in the vulnerable people in my midst. May I have a heart of compassion, like Joseph, that is open to the moving of the spirit in my life and those around me.

Question for reflection:

Who are the Marys, the vulnerable people, in my own life?

~ Katie Cummings, National Youth Conference Coordinator
