Prayer for Thursday

Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will.
Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being.
~ Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi

Spirit of God,
you hold us in Your embrace.
Your presence burns through this world,
transforming it.
You hold us in Your embrace.
You call us to see confront the mystery of evil.
You hold us in Your embrace.
You call us to live the astonishing mystery of good in the face
of the mystery of evil.
You hold us in Your embrace.
Be with us as we experiment with your nonviolence.
You hold us in Your embrace.
Give us the strength to break the rules of war,
to move from the war zone to the house of love.
You hold us in Your embrace.
We are grateful for You and for each other.

You hold us in Your embrace.
You hold us in Your embrace.
You hold us in Your embrace.
