Prayer for Monday,
October 12, 2020

Triune God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
we come before you
as many parts of a single body.
people drawn from every tribe,
every nation, every language;

some indigenous—
peoples of the land;
some refugees, immigrants, pilgrims—
people on the move;
some hosts, some guests,
some both hosts and guests;
all of us searching
for an eternal place
where we can belong.

Creator, forgive us.
The earth is yours
and everything that is in it.
But we forget.
In our arrogance
we think we own it.
In our greed
we think we can steal it.
In our ignorance
we worship it.
In our thoughtlessness
we destroy it.
We forget
that you created the earth
to bring praise and joy to you.
That you gave it as a gift,
for us to steward,
for us to enjoy,
for us to see more clearly
your beauty and your majesty.

Jesus, save us.

We wait for your kingdom.
We long for your throne.
We hunger for your reconciliation,
for that day where people
from every tribe and every tongue
will gather around you
and sing your praises.

Holy Spirit, teach us.
Help us to remember
that the body is made up
of many parts,
each one unique
and every one necessary.
Teach us to embrace the discomfort
that comes from our diversity
and to celebrate the fact
that we are unified,
not through our sameness,
but through the blood
of our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ.

Triune God, we love you.
Your creation is beautiful.
Your salvation is merciful.
And your wisdom is beyond compare.

We pray all this in Jesus’s name.
Amen.

As you boldly go out in the world today either in person or virtually,
remember that God goes before us and the Holy Spirit leads us.
Take these words from the hymn “Let Us Enter In” with you today.

Let us enter in to the song
of thanksgiving and freedom.
Let us enter in to the long line
of people in need.
Let us enter in to the strong mind
that God is still living.
Healing, forgiving–Let us enter in.

Let us enter in to the place
where our God has preceded.
Let us enter in to the face
of the fear and the pain.
Let us enter in to the grace
of the love when it’s needed.
Death is defeated!
Let us enter in.

Let us enter in to the heart
of a world that is broken.
Let us enter in to the start
of a hope we can share.
Let us enter in to the part
where we call one another
sister and brother.
Let us enter in.

A Prayer for Racial Justice

Save us, O God,
from ourselves,
from racism often cloaked
in pious words,
from the machinations
of white supremacy
hidden in calls for civility,
from micro aggressions
thinly veiled in arrogance,
from apologies
when they don’t give way to action,
from forgiveness
without facing the truth,
from reconciliation
without reparation.

Deliver us, O God,
from expecting siblings of color
to continue to bear
this emotional work,
which is not theirs to do.

Grateful for the long arc
that bends toward justice,
we pray:
Grant us wisdom,
and give us courage
for the facing of these days,
by the power of the Spirit,
all for the sake of the kin-dom
that we share in Christ Jesus.
Amen.

of courage and strength.
With that,
and in your company,
help us face challenges
and struggles against
all that is born of injustice.
