Meditations: “A Prayer for the People of Burma”
Also appropriate as Prayers
Spirit of Life, God of Justice, Mother of Creation,
You call us to embody equity and freedom in our lives.
You are present in every struggle to overcome oppression with peace and justice.
And though our sisters and brothers in Burma are half a world away from us,
yet we seek to be as near to them as we might in spirit and in prayer.
Provide further courage and strength to the noble cause of the citizens and religious leaders of Burma.
Inspire wisdom, understanding and compassion in the hearts and minds of
the members of the Myanmar government.
Comfort those who suffer in this struggle, and in all struggles for peace and justice in our world.
We seek to be useful instruments in solidarity with the people of Burma,
and so we rededicate ourselves to living lives examined through the lens
of right relationship internationally.
Our prayer is that in this very moment wisdom and compassion will guide our hands and our hearts.
May it be so.
