Prayer for June 2, 2019

Creator God, you have made all things beautifully and in your image. As we lift up the diversity of your creation, teach us to love people of all sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Let the LGBTQIA+ community see themselves in you.

Loving Spirit, teach us compassion to embrace the gifts you give. In our differences, teach us to love fully and radically all of your children, as their true and whole selves. Lead us with courage to be advocates for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, just as you sent your advocate through the Holy Spirit.

Breath of Life, create a spark of light in the hearts of your workers; empower those who strive to dismantle injustice surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community, creating equity in a system of oppression. This month as we celebrate 50 years of PRIDE, renew the passion in us to continue to this holy work of welcome, inclusion, and celebration.

Prayer for June 23, 2019

Welcoming One, walk alongside your leaders in this church, both rostered and lay people alike. As they lead your people to love as Jesus taught us to love, set their hearts on the work of social justice; to be voices for those who have no voice; to advocate for the full participation of our LGBTQIA+ siblings in the church and this world. Provide them with the courage to boldly proclaim welcome to all of your people.

As the 50 years of PRIDE celebrations come to a close, God we praise your name! It is in your name that we can be bold in our faith, and true to ourselves and our sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Help us celebrate long after the month of June the beauty of our diversity, treating all of your kin-dom with respect and love.
