Author of life, speak hope into the darkness and impact the things that we think about. Remove our blind spots, so that we can find solidarity with all and not some. Compel us to realize that we are all just discovering God here even if it’s only just in pieces. Build and rebuild the trust in this community so that we can come together, find common ground, and find You.
You, O Lord, are the source of the strength that gives us hope. And this hope is what allows us to “stand up, take a breath, and tell our truth” (Dane Chalfin).
