God of the unfamiliar, you go with us into places where we have choices. We see problems, and you see possibilities. We see ugliness, and you see beauty. We see a broken road, and you see a way forward. Help us see through the eyes of Jesus. When we face the difficulties of this world, may we see your truth as we move beyond our own limitations. Love will show us the way forward. Thank you for keeping us in your sight as we strive to do your will. Amen.
