Prayer on a Wintry Day - Offered by Dr. Leslie Whited in Collective Circle Prayer at Salt Lake Inter-Faith Round Table Breakfast 2.3.2017

All-Loving God,

We know you accompany
have preference for
the most vulnerable
and so you are with refugees
and you are especially with
people, refugees, of

Iraq
Iran
Somalia
Syria
Sudan
Libya
Yemen

that is sure.

You, God of Love,
can bring good out of even
this horrific national event
of discrimination
against national origin
against religion

that is sure.

Give us grace and courage
to do your will
and walk in your ways
with our  brothers and sisters,
everywhere,
In every nation.

Let us honor and build upon
the strength of
refugee and immigrant history
that is America,
for all of us were once refugees
except our first nation Indian
brothers and sisters.

Let us be bold
until we stand on equal ground
open-hearted before each other.

In God, as we each name God,
In God, we trust,
Amen.
