A Prayer for Racial Healing

God our Father, we praise and worship you. We ask for forgiveness

for our judgmental nature, our unconscious bias. We pray that our

faith in you helps us to overcome all racial divisions.

Jesus, our Savior, you were constantly judged by others. Help us to follow you by denying ourselves, and carrying the cross of our brothers and sisters who are treated unfairly.

Holy Spirit, open our hearts and our minds to the needs of others. Instill faith, hope and love, so that we may spread God’s kingdom on Earth. Guide us in honesty and truth, as we learn about one another. Fill us with forgiveness and love. That we all may be one.

Amen.
