God who already knows my prayers-
I am out of words that don’t sound trite.
I believe that you are already showing mercy.
Let my prayer, instead, be the work of my hands, my feet, my mouth, my ears
To daily, hourly, minute by minute
Dismantle the systems of racism and racial oppression in my country
And across the world.
This is your will and I am part of how you accomplish it.
