Praying from Matthew 12:12. Themes: Value of humanity, Lawful goodness, Sabbath observance.
Dear God, thank you for reminding us of the value of human life. Help us to always remember that every person is precious in your sight and deserves to be treated with love and respect. May we never forget that doing good and showing kindness to others is always the right thing to do, even on the Sabbath day. Give us the courage to stand up for what is right and to be a light in the world, shining your love and grace to all those around us. Amen.
Verse: Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath day.”
