Dear Lord, today
we give you thanks
for your servant
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
who helped to right the wrongs
of our society
through peaceful protest.
He gave his life for his cause.
We still have a way to go
to treat each person
with dignity and respect.
Open our hearts, Dear Lord,
that we may grow in love,
understanding, and appreciation
of all your people

Matthew 5:43-45:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?”
