Pray for peace

We pray for peace today at all the Black Lives Matter protests in Worcester, Birmingham, London and elsewhere. We pray that everyone involved- protestors, police and others, will feel safe and that nobody will come to harm. I offer you this prayer of St Francis to consider as you pray today:
May God bless you with discomfort,
At easy answers, half-truths,
And superficial relationships
So that you may live
Deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression,
And exploitation of people,
So that you may work for
Justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears,
To shed for those who suffer pain,
Rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand
To comfort them and
To turn their pain to joy

And may God bless you
With enough foolishness
To believe that you can
Make a difference in the world,
So that you can do
What others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness
To all our children and the poor.
