God of many names, we awaken Wednesday to newly elected leadership in MCC. We ask for your anointing on them and on us as we move together to follow your leading to transform the world as we transform ourselves.
We pray for healing in our movement. Grant us the wisdom to understand the ways we participate in systems and structures that oppress. Give us the willingness to repent from those ways and the vulnerability to ask for forgiveness from those we have harmed.
Give us the courage to speak our truth when we have been wronged. Soften our hearts so that we may grant forgiveness to those who have harmed us. Transform our anger into passion for the work of justice.
Help us to acknowledge the good we see in others and to claim who we know in our hearts others to be.
We ask these things believing that you have called us into being and knowing there is still more work for MCC to do in the world. Amen
