A Prayer

Loving God,
You have shown us that love is the way to eternal life.
Body slamming is not loving.
Lying is not loving.
Obfuscation is not loving.
Blaming the victim is not loving.
These are the refuge of the power-hungry, power grabbing, power-loving Antichrist.
Give us strength to continue to love, to work for justice and to advocate on the behalf of the poor and oppressed.
It’s what Jesus did.
Help us be more like him.
Help us not to believe in our own self-importance over the welfare of our brothers and sisters- because that’s sinful.
