So here it is.
You already know.
You already know it because it already broke your heart.
Burst you to tears.
Trembled inside your gut.
Kept you awake deep into the night, despite your weariness.
You feel it, not just in your body, but in your dreams, in your hopes, in your spirit, in that song that won’t stop singing inside your skull.
You already know.
What you are required to do.
What you’ve been told to do.
What you’ve been called to do.
It’s burning through your prayers.
It’s desperate to form on your lips.
You feet always lean in that direction.
We already know.
We know what justice is ours to do.
We know which loving kindness is ours to offer.
We know how we’re being pulled to journey with God.
We know. You know. We absolutely know it.
Will we go?
Will we go do it?
Will we go be it?

Oh precious God, help us try.
Amen.


Prayer written by Rev. Erin Counihan, who serves as pastor at Oak Hill Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, MO.
