God of love, you were the strength and hope of your servant Martin Luther King Jr. With desire for your justice, we pray: God, come to our aid. 

Open our eyes and hearts to know the ways that prejudice and racism unravel the fabric of the human family.  

God, come to our aid. 

Increase your Church’s commitment to address the racial injustices in her structures and the structures of society.  

God, come to our aid. 

Prosper your Church’s work to make every facet of human life reflect the true dignity of the human person.  

God, come to our aid. 

Our Father . . . 

May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Amen.
