There has been a lot of violence in the world lately. It seems that the efforts of peacemakers, equality seekers, and justice sojourners are being required everywhere this month. So today we offer up a prayer for the movement–the movement of people working together to seek a more peaceful and just world, the movement of people working against racism and sexism, agasint violence and destruction. This is for all of us…this is a prayer for the movement.
Dear Spirit of Merciful Peace,
We ask you to sustain us
as we work together
across lines of race and religion
through differences of creed and culture,
towardsa world of peace and love.
We ask that you help us help each other
during these times of darkness and pain.
We ask that you help us open our eyes
to see the beauty and hope in one another,
even when our differences seem vast.
We are each a part of this world,
and we need strength and wisdom
to be part of the movement of peacemakers and healers,
to live with compassion and work for justice.
We pray together,
We are the movement.
