Friday Prayer: For Racial Harmony

For Racial Harmony

God of all, in your love you made all the nations of the world to be a family, and your Son taught us to love one another.

Yet our world is riven apart with prejudice, arrogance, and pride.

Help the different races to love and understand one another better.
Increase among us sympathy, tolerance, and goodwill,that we may learn to appreciate the gifts races and ethnicities may share with one another, and to see in all people our brothers and sisters for whom Christ died.

Save us from jealousy, hatred, and fear, and help us to live together as members of one family at home in the world, sons and daughters of one Holy Parent who live in the liberty of the children of God;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
