Heavenly Father, we come before you with a grateful heart. As we celebrate Black History Month, we remember those who have suffered due to persecution, inequality and discrimination. Grant your people unity and harmony to work together in peace and understanding. Through Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen.
Gracious Lord, as we join several others all over the world to celebrate this year’s black history month, help us to cultivate a deep love, forgiveness and compassion for one another, cherishing the unique qualities we are made of and seeking to understand one another through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
We remember the families of those persecuted, tortured and died due to hatred, racism and discrimination. Let your love be a shield that protects them from division, conflict and discord. In your mercies, heal any brokenness or wounds within us, mend the bonds that have been strained, restore broken relationships, and bring reconciliation where there is division. Through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen
As we pray this Black History Month, help us, Heavenly Father, to extend grace, justice and forgiveness, which you have extended to us. Bless your people with good health both in body and mind. Provide for their needs and grant them the wisdom to navigate life challenges. May your people be a shining light, reflecting your light and grace to the world. In all things, may we seek to honour and glorify you. Through the merits of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
