Prayer for January 16

Prayer for January 16: Please pray with me. God of justice, today we pray that your mercy and justice would flow through our land. Help us to hear the words that Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke – to judge each other by the contents of our character, not by the color of our skin.  Help all of us to see the humanity of each person, to hold a hand out – to either help their neighbor, or to be helped by a neighbor.  We are all in need of that help in some part of our life.  Bless all who work to reconcile differences and disparities.  Move us to to bend the arc of history toward reconciliation.  Amen.
