Prayer for Racial Justice Sunday

God of Peace and Justice,
We have lost our way, though this is not new.
For too long, we have held to an image of you that we have used to harm and exclude others based on their race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ability.
Help us to set aside these false ideas and instead grow our imaginations for inclusion, equity, and diversity.
God, grant us a vision of a society that embraces liberation, that can support the thriving of Black, brown, and indigenous peoples and bear witness to their joy and celebration.
Open our eyes that we may see our part in liberation and move us to better love our neighbors who are different from us.
Move us to always affirm the dignity and humanity of others, not only in our individual actions, but in the systems that we can influence.
God, bring us closer to Zion.
