Source of Life, Creator, God: Bless these your people; Bless the hands, the feet, the hearts, and the spirits that gather for such a time as this. May they know their belovedness before you. May we feel your presence palpably. May your provisional grace and your mercy meet us at every turn. May your protective hand be upon us. May you create passageways and estuaries where justice and truth prevail. Sharpen our senses toward the unexpected and give us strength to endure. Help us to be fortified by the mighty cloud of witnesses who have gone before us. May your power be evident and available, today. May the glory of freedom come. May it be so. Amen.
