A Prayer for Peace and Healing in our Community

O, Loving Father, You the creator of the earth and creator of human beings. In your Image, send your Spirit upon our neighborhoods and members of our churches that our hearts become hearts of love and not hearts of stone.

May your Spirit fill us with insight and understanding of the issues that lay below the surface of Michael Brown's death. May you console Michael Brown's family with your healing grace, and walk with the family of the policeman involved in the shooting.

Bless as well those who hold positions of authority in our communities... give them wisdom, compassion and courage as they serve the common good.

We stand before you in our brokenness, pleading for your grace to come upon us, that we might be filled with your presence at this time.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Prayer of St. Richard
