Saying ‘Hello’ Is a Prayer

Jul 16, 2021
When you say hello, it's a prayer


Every greeting can be an opportunity to acknowledge the holiness of our companions. United in the Holy Spirit, our spirits bless one another. Our “hello” can be our blessing and affirmation that we are God’s beloved children and make a commitment to support each other.


Parent of us all,
whose love joins us in spirit and love,
let every greeting be a prayer
and every word be a blessing.
Let me see the holiness in myself
and in my neighbor,
and share your love with everyone I meet.


In the spirit of seeing every encounter as a blessing, let me consciously bless everyone I meet today, surrounding them with God’s love and treating them with respect and civility.
