Loving God, who reigns on Earth as it is in Heaven
Father God Whom the prophet Isaiah called the Mother of Zion,
We come to you with humble and contrite hearts,
Asking for the repentance of our sins, both known and unknown,
Forgive us for our sins as well as forgive those who sin against us.
We pray that we can experience reconciliation, truth, and peace,
You, Oh God, are the God of Life, the Spirit of Freedom
You are the God of Moses, and the prophet Miriam, Harriet Tubman, and Trayvon Martin
Sustain us this day in the land of the living,
Spirit of Life, renew us, lead us and guide us to live in solidarity with the oppressed,
Empower us to live as life-giving witnesses of the Gospel,
For it is in His precious and matchless name we pray, Amen.
