We admit and acknowledge this country’s original and enduring sins of racism and white supremacy. We pray for complete repentance. Show us a path toward reparation, God of Repair and Mercy.
We pray for the wisdom and strength to bring healing and justice, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
We pray for an end to white supremacy, an end to racist policing, an end to the ransom system that is cash bail.
With mothers who mourn this day, we mourn.
With the mother of Ahmaud Arbery, we mourn.
With the mother of Breonna Taylor, we mourn.
With the mother of Sean Reed, we mourn.
With Tamir’s mother, Trayvon’s mother, Sandra’s mother, we mourn.
We mourn with you, God, the mother of us all.
