A Prayer to the Holy Trinity in a Time of Protest


Published in the issue.

O Creator God, we bring to you, today, the difficult emotions
arising in our hearts during this time of social unrest.
We bring to you our sorrow, our anger, our fear,
anxiety, disappointment, and heartbreak.
We ask you to hold them with compassion and grace,
so that we can bring clarity to our antiracist work.
We rely on your promise:
“I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

O Saving Jesus, we bring to you our deepest intentions for justice,
seeking to respond to the call to uproot the sin of racism.
Open our hearts and minds to awareness of suffering as a pattern;
and encourage us to enter the struggle, as compassion requires.
Fill us with a quiet power to join with others in solidarity,
striving to ensure the flourishing of all God’s children.
We rely on your promise:
“I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

O Holy Spirit, we bring to you our bodies and our actions,
asking a blessing for courage to speak truth to power.
Breathe in us a lifegiving spirit to strengthen our commitment.
Open us to the endless possibilities of God’s love and justice.
May cries of Black Lives Matter! merge with the winds of change,
To awaken our spirits, open our eyes, and inspire us to action.
We rely on your promise:
“I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
