Lord, we humbly come before You seeking reconciliation in our nation. Compel us by the love of Jesus to see your guiding hand in leading us to forgiveness while embracing one another in the spirit of pardon and peace.
May you give us the courage to hear every story of every person with respect, dignity and with humility. Give us hope in the cross of Jesus.
Help us by your grace in a ministry of reconciliation you have brought before us to do: to heal and to make us whole in the spirit of unity, that we might work to remove every barrier that provokes, promotes and sustains violence.
Let your word of reconciliation be in our hearts and in our mouths that your peace will be present to all to lead us to walk hand in hand to restore this divided and hurting nation.
We ask these things in the Name of Jesus,
