Grant us Grace, O Lord, to battle audaciously
against evil and to make no peace with oppression.
Make us your vessels of transformation,
to resist cruelty in all its manifestations:
that no human shall be denied the right to thrive,
to live without fear, or to flourish in all their promise.
God calls us to courageously act in the Way of Love
and to be agents toward changing racism
bring us together, Lord, to face our sinful ways,
that we may change our systemic inequity,
and embrace the changes we must make.
Let us rejoice in the work begun almost 160 years ago,
and grant us the resolve to continue
the healing and reconciliation,
and the will to ensure that no person
is ever subjected to bigotry and hatred.
We offer this prayer that your glory and honor
might be made known through the freedom of all people.
Prayer to honor Juneteenth, 2022
