Today, we pray for those labelled black sheep
Lord Jesus, You are all about love, mercy and justice. When the world brands a person as a black sheep, please hold his or her hand. The moment when one of us is labelled as bad or evil, or judged for our choices, may Your angels rush to our aid; to lift us up and to give us grace and courage. May we able to bear the insults better, knowing that the world did the same to You years ago. May we not judge, lest we be judged ourselves. Bless our harshest critics today. And heal us and dry our tears, Lord. Amen.
