Prayer for Equity

God, Creator of all things
we come with a broken heart
that has been torn
like Jesus on the cross,
the cross that draws together
your children of many colors.

You know our suffering.
We ask in Jesus'name that
you heal your people.

Where there has been unearned
advantage because of the
color of our skin,
give us courage to repent
and to fight the injustice
and sin of racism.

Holy God, who created all colors
of people, allow us to honor
your light in every soul.

Help us to see you
in one another,
to hear your voice in all people,
and to work to end racism in
our churches and our communities,
and the world.
