Passage Romans 15:1-13
O LORD and Father, who welcomes all into your family,help us to welcome one another, as Christ has welcomed us, for your glory. For you taught us that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show your truthfulness - in order to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs, and in order that we who were not Jews might glorify you for your mercy.
May you, our Father and God, fill us with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may abound in hope.
In the name of Jesus and according to his command. Amen.
