Prayer Offered for March 30, 2023

We pray this prayer in honor of César Chávez by Rafael Jesús González

God of all peoples and nations, show us the suffering of the most miserable;

So we will know our people’s plight.

Free us to pray for others;

For You are present in every person.

Help us to take responsibility for our own lives;

So that we can be free at last.

Grant us courage to serve others;

For in service there is true life.

Give us honesty and patience;

So that we can work with workers.

Bring forth song and celebration;

So that Your Spirit will be alive among us.

Let Your Spirit flourish and grow;

So we will never tire of the struggle.

Let us remember those who have died for justice;

For they have given us life.

And help us love even those who hate us;

So we can change the world.—AMEN.
