All-knowing and ever-loving God, on this day in our nation when so much is at stake for so many, pour your abundant grace upon us:
*On those who step with shaky feet into a spotlight they never wanted, to speak of memories they wish they could forget;
*On those who listen and question and determine, that they might seek truth with care and compassion and place people before politics;
*On a nation gripped by division, on a democracy vulnerable to decay;
*On all those for whom these moments bring trauma and wounds ripped open and raw.
O God, have mercy upon each one. May your truth, your justice, your will be known, even and especially amid this turmoil of our own making.
In the name of the Christ who taught us a more excellent way. Amen.
(Written by Rev. Shari Prestemon, 9/27/18)
