A special prayer for this week

For this day’s blog I’d like to share a prayer from Richard Rohr that follows on the heels of this week’s verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial.  May this prayer be our prayer as well as we all seek to find hope for a better future...



God of Truth,

We thank you today

For the Justice of this moment and a

Judgment according to

Your will.

You have again

Inspired action that

Brought down the arrogant and

Called the powerful to account.


May this give all people hope for our

Healing – together!

May you free us from our

Need for vengeance

And clear the field to be ready for new seed.


Richard Rohr 4/20/21
