Prayer 438- On the anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Almighty God, we thank You for sending us prophets and leaders like the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

May we also dedicate our lives to the cause of true peace, founded upon freedom rather than the rubble of injustice. May we open our hearts to our neighbors, even those who call us enemies, and overcome physical division through spiritual strength. Through the power of love, may we break the dams that hold back the waters of justice, that we may live in verdant valleys of fellowship. May we see the face of Christ in all, and bear our hardships with dignity, through trust in your bountiful mercy. May we seek to make our lives a worthy offering to You, O Love Divine. 

Look not on our faults, but lead us into righteousness, and give ear to our petitions and thanksgivings
