#StopTheHate Sunday @AllSaintsChurch

    We pray this morning for peace, for an end to violence in all forms.

    • We pray for Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. And for all those people of color who have died at as the result of unnecessary and unjustified deadly force.
    • For their grieving families: for children who have lost their parents, and parents who grieve for their murdered children.
    • We pray for Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael Smith, Brent Thompson and Patrick Zamarripa. And for all those police officers who risk their lives to protect and serve our communities.
    • For communities who live in fear and despair, for the suffering, the poor, the marginalized.
    • For the courage and commitment to move beyond prayer to action, beyond tears to resolve, beyond weariness to true and lasting change.
    • We pray for righteousness to flow like a mighty river, until peace fills the earth as the waters fill the sea.
