Senate Prayer for March 16, 2023

O God, who weeps at fractured lives,

Inspire us to heal the hurting.

Help us to seal the cracks

Created by our complicity in failing to love.

May our words and actions speak love and not complacency.

May we choose love—

When faced with mindless hate,

Love—when faced with retaliation,

Love—when tempted by deception,

Love—when addressing the issues of our time.

May we choose love—

When facing racism, sexism, heterosexism, xenophobia.

In all that we do, in all that we say,

And in all the places we go,

May we choose love,

And demonstrate our love with action.—AMEN.
