A Prayer For This Day, For This Time, For This Place

Almighty God-

of many colors, many names and many faces, thank you for love, grace, redemption, liberation, restoration and reconciliation.

Thank you for raising up liberators in every generation who are committed to justice, peace, equality and human kindness.

Continue to empower us as your people to seek peace over being right, to fight for freedom over striving for the last word, to seek justice to encourage the oppressed, to defend the cause of the fatherless and to plead the case of the widow.

Fill us with a longing to bring about change, and grant us the courage we need to continually use our unique gifts to make the world a better place.

In all of your many wonderful names we pray,

Amen.
