A Prayer for Atlanta and our Asian-American Neighbors

Inclusivity Social Justice


O God, our strength and our redeemer, we stand with our Asian-American sisters and brothers today.
In the words of your saint and missionary Patrick, we pray that your Son Jesus Christ would be so pervasive among us, on every side, that we would sense his peace and power.
As sinners in need of grace, remove the impulses within us to violence and the mindsets that contribute to racism.
As citizens and neighbors, disturb our quiet acceptance of continuing acts of racist violence.
As disciples, guide our feet in the way of peace.
Amen.
