flower in CAGod our rock
God of changing seasons
God of justice
God of promise
God of love

Be with us now as we seek answers in the midst of flying bullets, drones and bombs

Be with us now as we run for cover in the midst of tornadoes, floods and storms

Be with us now as we face hate in its many and growing forms, isms, and manifestations

God our rock
God of changing seasons
God of justice
God of promise
God of love

Be with us now as we boldly begin to uncover and name our own histories, identities, and gifts

Be with us now as we create space for active listening, being known, and truly seeing each other

Be with us now as we lay aside our weapons of fear, hate, greed and supremacy

God our rock
God of changing seasons
God of justice
God of promise
God of love

Cause us to fully embody Your holy will for a world of love, justice and peace – now and forevermore.  Amen.
