God, as our world is on fire, we are desperate for a healing justice unshackled from any industrial complex. Empower us to build new relationships that are intersectional, embodied, and equitable. Strengthen us to also practice the way of healing ourselves as we strive to lead movements for justice, for it is only then that we can be the healing of our collective wounds. Amen.

Creator God, Healer of wounds,
Your mercies are new every morning.
As our bodies in motion are temples of your presence,
Keep us safe and heal our injuries.
Lord, for those whose immune systems need more support,
shield their community from sickness;
for in you we all move and breathe and have our being.
Your son Jesus Christ, street medic in his spiritual and political revolution,
preferred to spend time with the outcast, the disabled, and the agitators.
Empower and guide our street medics and community health workers;
may they comfort and protect those along the way of life and truth,
so that we may continue following you, however perilous the journey.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
