For the state of our dis-union in this nation caused by white supremacy, patriarchy, racism, and homophobia – forgive us and move us towards healing.
For the state of our dis-union in this world caused by greed, hubris, xenophobia, and anthropocentrism – forgive us and move us towards healing.
For the state of our dis-union at the very center of our beings caused by shame, guilt, hate, and fear – forgive us and move us towards healing.
Lead us with Your Spirit to a place of wisdom.
Lead us with Your grace back to Your vision of heaven on earth.
Lead us with Your love back to wholeness.
One creation, beloved by You.
May it be so… soon and very soon.
