Sunday Prayer and Prayers for Charlottesville

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 8.39.40 PMGrant to us,
we pray,

the spirit to think and do always those things that are right,
that we,
who cannot exist without you,
may by you be enabled to live according to your will;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God,
for ever and ever.

To this prayer we add

Our prayers of intercession for those who were injured,
for their families,
for those who were traumatized by the reckless behavior of one person,
and for all those who oppose evil in all its forms.

We pray too for those who consider racist ideologies acceptable
that they will see through their sin
to the deeper truth of God’s love for all
and our need of one another.

We denounce as Christians racism in all its forms,
white nationalism,
domestic terrorism,
and hatred of all kinds.
