God who interprets my dreams, help me to see your dreams rather than the created nightmare I often find myself in. A nightmare of division by ideology and interpretation. A nightmare of segregation and classism. Help me to instead view the world as you do, a world of abundance and not of famine as we view in your Holy Word today. Open my eyes, that I might see Jesus, open my eyes Lord. Amen.
