A Prayer for this Day

bars sunset

There will come a day…

When words are not used like knives,
to cut down and decrease.

When the meek and lowly are raised up
and valued as God’s treasure.

When all weapons are cleared from the land,
melted down in a mighty fire of peace.

When the poor dine
on milk and honey and dignity.

When freedom is not reserved
for a privileged few, but ALL.

There will come a day…
But it is not yet this day.

This day
We can only turn to our God for guidance
To shine Holy light on human weakness and injustice;

To raise up prophets and soldiers
of peace and love

To forge us with the fire of equality and grandeur,
until we are strong like steel.

Raise up
Shine down
Speak truth
Dig deep
All in all

Loving God,
Show us the way
On this day.

AMEN.
