A Prayer for the Protestor

A prayer for the protestor, who left the safety of their house to make their outrage known.

May you be blessed with the strength of your message

May the Holy Spirit  protect you, and your body and your face. Keeping you safe from abuse or identification.

May the food & water be plentiful for your journey, as well as the masks and the hand sanitizer.

Bless your hands, your voice, your feet that carry your message; blessings for all those being the hands and feet of Christ.

May you move the hardened hearts and open up the stopped ears.

May your outcomes be worth the risks.

May the language of marching, blocking traffic, graffiti, destruction of private property and riots be made clear.

Let all injustice end.

May your anger be righteous, and may your prayers be able to flip the tables of the greedy and move the mountains of authority.

Let justice roll down like water: keeping violence out of the hands of the powers & principalities, turning the power structures upside-down so the marginalized can finally be heard and saved.

Lord hear your prayer, Lord hear our prayer, Amen!
