Prayer for the Week
from Rev. Emily Brewer, Executive Director of the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship
God who moves beyond and through all borders
break the walls of hostility and hate that exist in our world and in our hearts.
For those of us who live in safety,
let us remember that our call is solidarity;
for those of us who live with privilege,
let us remember our call is to protest violence;
for those of us who live with abundance,
remind us that our call is generosity.*
And for those who flee violence, persecution, and poverty,
protect them and lead them to a safe haven.
*These words were adapted for this prayer from words that Rev. Traci Blackmon spoke on the California beach before leading a group of clergy to the US/Mexico border wall this week. Rev. Brewer and approximately 30 other clergy members were arrested by Border Patrol agents during this action.
