A Prayer as we begin Black History Month
God of love, peace, and unity,
we thank you for welcoming us all just as we are;
for making us equal as your children
from all corners of the earth;
and for giving us your blessings as your children;
and for making us belong.
We pray that you help us realize that we are
all made in your image, and we need to bring peace
to all your creation as one people who belong to you.
We ask all this through Christ our brother. Amen.
