God of all Creation, pour your Spirit into me this day.
May all I do speak truth, embody peace, walk in the footsteps of justice for all people.
Fill me with discernment.
Align me with goodness.
Show me beauty in all moments of doubt.
Send me where your light needs to shine.
Always and in everything, God of Grace, may your love prevail …
            in cold homes
            in dark prison cells
            in empty stomachs
            in violent words
            in abuse
            in lies
            in brokenness
            in emptiness
            in places of power
            in powerlessness
            in poverty
            in tears
            in hearts and minds
            in words and actions
                        may justice and right prevail.
