A Prayer for Inauguration Day

On this inauguration day, we pray for a day

when hope abounds in all our people

when no one is viewed as suspect because of the color of his skin or the covering of her hair

when everyone is able to make a living wage

when there is healthcare for all

when all children have full access to quality education

when art and music and theater are valued and viewed as vital to our lives

when women are given control over their own bodies, and all children are cherished and nourished

when love is always celebrated and never discriminated

when no one is lost to gun violence on the streets

We pray that we might find common ground in common causes.

We pray for ways to come together in a country that seems torn apart.

Light of the World, light our way.  And may Your light shine through us, illuminating the path for others.
