At the Women’s March in Topeka, KS, on January 21, 2017

Holy God,

Some of us are marching today,
reminding others—and ourselves–
that we are all in this together
and we can do better for each other.

Some of us are writing today,
struggling with the words you have given
and the words we will offer on your behalf.

Some of us are relaxing today,
enjoying holy rest, sacred fun
the beauty of this world and these lives that you have given.

Some of us seek healing today,
health for our bodies,
wholeness for our spirits.

Incarnate God,
some of us are grieving,
some of us are searching,
some of us are rejoicing,
some of us are doing all of the above.

All of us offer this prayer:
for us to know your divine presence in the midst of it all;
for your grace to be real in our lives;
for your healing to saturate our world.

Amen


Rev. Joanna Harader serves as pastor of Peace Mennonite Church in Lawrence, Kansas, where she is getting ready to attend a local Women’s March, working on her sermon, and hoping for some time to relax later.
