In Need Of Courage

Lord, give us the courage to move forward and not fall back –

  • courage to work through our fears,
  • courage to put aside the old patterns of exclusion and denial,
  • courage to confront our hate and anger,
  • courage to care for one another.

Give us the courage to challenge –

  • mendacity,
  • fake news,
  • narratives of hate and fear,
  • paranoia and conspiracy theories masquerading as facts.

Give us the courage to bridge our divides and work together to build a future better than our past –

  • more just,
  • more equitable,
  • more merciful,
  • more compassionate.

Guide us O Lord, teach us your paths, show us your ways, guide us in your truth and give us hope. (Ps. 25:4-5).

Amen
