Lord-

The Davids of the world needs Nathans and Abigails.

More critically, the Davids need to listen to the truth-speaking, reconciliation-seeking, call a fool, a fool, daring, courageous, risk-taking, assault-naming, God-listening and hearing, peace-making, grief-stricken, reality-understanding, not in it for profit prophets that do exist.

Soften necks, O God, and open up hardened hearts.

Make a way out of no way.

And give words to those who seek your true way of justice and peace.

Amen.
