so many lives… and all of them matter – yet because of the way the world perceives some, for us, right now we must emphasise that Black Lives Matter… really, really matter.
in your Holy Eyes -you see no difference
Help us to see as you see
the beloved child of God
Help us to speak out – showing those who see difference that it is they who are different; they who dishonour; who discriminate; it is they who need to change.
Help us to show others, by our love in action that we can see beyond, deeper, clearer; and by doing so may we help others to see too.
Holy One: it feels like the world is spinning out of control; in every corner; in every country; in every place there is hurt and pain and unnecessary grief. And we are left – wordless; prayer-less; sightless; hopeless. Only with you, through you will we be able to find again, the words, the prayers, the sight, the hope – only with you
