A Prayer for Unity and Understanding

Gracious and loving God,

  • You created one humanity.  Your Son prayed that all people might be one, even as you are one. 

  • Your Holy Spirit was poured out upon all flesh empowering your children to live out your reign in our world now.

  • Yet we have fractured your good creation.  We have not loved others as ourselves. 

  • We have been deaf and blind to the needs, the pains and the hopes of our neighbors.

  • We mourn as we witness the divisions among your children, especially in this time of racial tension and civic unrest. 

  • We come to you now on behalf of the family and friends of George Floyd. 

  • Comfort them in their grief, embracing them in your arms of love. 

  • Sustain their hope with a vision of life and resurrection. 

  • We pray for justice even as we pray that their request for peaceful protests might be heard.

  • We pray for those frustrated by injustice and systemic hatred. 

  • Renew the dream of Dr. King that one day we might all live out his vision from the mountaintop.

  • We pray for all those police who see their reputations tarnished by the actions of a few. 

  • Sustain them in their very difficult work.

  • We pray for our cities and shop owners who suffer from the destruction wrought by those who have taken advantage of the peaceful protests. 

  • We give thanks for all who help them rebuild their businesses and their lives.

  • Finally we pray for your church throughout the world.  May we be examples of your love. 

  • Open our eyes that we can see beyond skin color and cultural differences, acting for justice and healing for all.           In the name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.
