The Hindu festival of Navratri continues today.
God is not so far away.
He is not in the heavens above, nor in hell below.
He is always near you.
~ Sai Baba of Shirdi
Look with pity, O heavenly Father, upon the people in this land who live with oppression, terror, disease, or injustice as their constant companions. Have mercy upon us. Grant that everyone of us may enjoy a fair portion of the riches of this land. Strengthen those who labor establishing equal protection of the law and fair opportunities for all. Help all your children to eliminate cruelty and hate crimes towards our neighbors and kin. Grant this Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake lived as the poor, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
(21st Century Ecumenical Christian Prayer)
