Prayer Offered for June 12, 2023

In the words of Rabbi Harold Kushner, we pray today:

Loving Creator, let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges….

Let the rain wash away the memory of the hurt, the neglect.

Let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows.

Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken.

Let it burn away the fog so that we can see each other clearly—

So that we can see beyond labels, beyond accents, gender, or skin color….

Let the light of the sun be so strong that we will see all people as our neighbors.

Let the Earth, nourished by rain, bring forth flowers to surround us with beauty.

And let the mountains teach us and teach our hearts to reach upward to heaven.—AMEN.
