Prayer for Black History Month

Merciful God, you bring freedom to those who have been oppressed and enslaved. You are the liberator of your people.   

May we be a people who reflect your character and advocate for the liberation of people who are pushed down by the systemic injustice and prejudice.  

We thank you this month for leaders like Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King Jr. May we follow their lead and fight for freedom at every turn. 

May we know the weight of our responsibility and the levity of your grace.
