A Prayer for Racial Justice Sunday 2021

The Archbishops’ Anti-Racism Taskforce has released a prayer ahead of Racial Justice Sunday this weekend, written by the Revd Dr Anderson Jeremiah, a member of the taskforce.

Love incarnate,
Fountain of Mercy and Justice
In a world of inequity and pain
May our actions be our prayer. 
We cry out for Shalom, fullness of life to all.
Let the Spirit of Truth guide us.
Let the Spirit of Love free us. 
Give us the compassion, courage and resolve
to become the light, we seek
that many may see life and their dignity restored
Inspire us to embody a world without injustice and prejudice  
Form us into channels of your love and peace 
Let the river of justice and mercy flood our imperfect world  
Quenching the thirst of parched souls and lands.
Abide in us o Liberator that we become the Word 
so that the world may have Life, Life in all its abundance.
Amen
