Racism is a deeply rooted malady in every society in the world and must be uprooted with intentionality and awareness. May this prayer aid you in your anti-racism work to be a better disciple of Jesus.
God of justice, all people are made in your image
and all people have equal dignity and worth.
Show me the ways I have been blind
to my own prejudices
and help me be part of the healing
rather than part of the problem.
May I have the humility to learn
and the courage to call others forth
to a world of greater equality.
Find and employ one action to equip your anti-racism work. Sign up for an online course, read a book, or bring in a person of color as a speaker to your parish or faith community.
