Author of all knowledge and truth, Source of all beauty and reason,

Empower and inspire us to join with you in continuing to break down barriers of prejudice and injustice and ignorance so that all people–black and brown and white, female and male of all faiths–may have the freedom to become all you created us to be in your divine image. Fill us with your love so that we can be your agents of change in our community and in our world.
