Prayer for Rooted Resolution
God, You who call us to be Community,
We thank you for this day,
For this life and breath so that we may work
To fulfill the Beloved Community.
Thank you for giving us a root to seek
The living waters and radical connections
That help us grow.
We ask for the strength to carry on
Through tired legs, heavy minds, and weeping
We ask for the wisdom to recognize the
We have to each other so that we may build
Compassion, empathy, and solidarity.
Please cultivate our hearts
So that we set aside our egos
To listen and to walk in solidarity and mutuality
With those who are marginalized and
Please cultivate our understanding
To know the impacts of our actions.
Help us to recognize the Peace needed
To forgive ourselves and each other
So that we may walk together in love, not hate.
Help us to recognize your Spirit in the
Between our roots, in our community,
And in our families...
