Prayer for Tuesday (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day)

Today is the US holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., minister, civil rights activist, and champion of non-violence. (It is officially celebrated on Monday the 21st.)

At the center of non-violence
stands the principle of love.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

A Prayer To Begin Our Exploration of Gandhi’s Vision

Spirit of God, You are present to us
in the midst of the sharp dilemmas of our lives
and the life of the world.
Open our hearts,
the way You opened the heart of our brother Mohandas Gandhi,
to see Your creativity generating alternatives, options and choices
in the face of massive violence and injustice.
Help us learn, as he did,
the “power of the powerless” in unleashing and nurturing
justice in an unjust world.
Bring us into contact with your Soul-Force
in finding solutions to the complex challenge of violence
that wounds our human family and the Earth itself.
