Oh God, in Your church is diversity as Your Word declares that just as the body, though one, has many parts to form one body, so it is with Christ. We were all baptized with one Spirit to form one body. Thank You for including everyone so that we could all contribute to being a reflection of You. I pray that we all learn to appreciate the diversity among our brothers and sisters and embrace their different nationalities, talents, gifts and more. Amen.
