PRAYER FOR AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

Loving God,

Bless today in special ways
all the children, adults and families
who see the world through the window of autism.
May Your Spirit burn bright in them
and all who celebrate and honor the richness of our diversity during this Autism Awareness Month.

Grant us, O Lord, the wisdom
to see your image reflected
in all of our differences, and to recognize the unique gifts we each have to offer.

May the doors of ministry in our Church
Continue to open wide in welcome to all of God's family.
We ask this in Jesus' holy name.

Amen.
