As we respond in different ways to the news of the verdict in Derek Chauvin trial for the murder of George Floyd, we are sharing three prayers for personal reflection or community worship.
God of Justice,
We will cry how long no more.
No more long nights of lamentation without signs of the morning,
No more cries for justice.
It is time God, for action.
It is time God, for justice.
Until Black peoples are treated as sacred, with love, respect and dignity;
Until Black peoples are not weaponized;
Until Black peoples are not over-policed in their thoughts and actions;
Until Black peoples are not terrorized.
We will not rest.
We will call for action.
We will seek accountability.
We will be the change.
May it be so,
