Protector and Servant of the Oppressed, whose Child was pierced with metal by militarized police, we know that wherever there is a broken body, wherever there are tears, you are there. May your holy and life-giving Spirit so move every human heart that all racial barriers that divide us would crumble. May those who have been ordained to protect and serve repent of their violence, that they may join with us in the new life you have promised in Jesus Christ. Amen.
