Seeing Christ in One Another
Our Parish Prayer


Christ, Let me see you in others.
Christ, Let others see you in me.
Christ, Let me see:
You are the caller
You are the poor
You are the stranger at my door.
You are the wanderer - the unfed
You are the homeless with no bed.
You are the one driven insane
You are the child crying in pain.
You are the other who comes to me
Open my eyes that I may see.
Christ, grant that in me others may see:
Your glory,
Your grace,
Your goodness,
Your presence,
For without you I am nothing.
