God of all known by many names, Holy one. It’s in sorrow that I implore your intercession in removing the darkness that has descended upon this land. Heartbroken and filled with pain, we are on the precipice of descending into our lowest form of baseness in despair. Lift the veil of hatred, envy and confusion that clouds our judgement. Give us the clarity needed to remember that the essence of your love and light resides in each of us. Divine one, it is through faith and by grace that we have survived the suffering and despair thrust upon us. Strengthen our resolve to work for justice and healing in a land filled with broken people. Help us to find hope amidst our perceived hopelessness. Refresh and restore our spirits with renewed vigor. Give us courage to get up as we fall again and again. From my heart to Yours, May it be so.
