Prayer Offered for February 24, 2022

As we end this month dedicated to Black History, we continue to pray for racial healing based on Psalms 19 and 139:

How can I discern my own inner racism, Lord?

Cleanse me, I pray, from my hidden errors of thinking.

Also, I ask that You restrain in me any intentional acts of racism.

Let not the habits of systemic racism rule my life.

Point out anything in me that is harmful to people of color, and lead me into a new and better future.—AMEN.

(Adapted from Psalms 19:13, 14 and 139:24 and from The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola by Father Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ)
