We know that all heart work starts with Christ so we go to Him in prayer for ourselves, our church, and others.
Father, we thank you that you call us all your sons and daughters. In this month dedicated to Black History, open my heart, mind, and eyes to the history of the brothers and sisters you have placed around me. Help me to know that our differing experiences offers an opportunity for gaining different knowledge, insights, and perspectives. Remind me that you created all nations, tribes, and tongues to create the beauty of your human tapestry. Allow me to honor the many ways in which Black people have advanced not just the cause of Christ, but have made advancements that help all of us many times without the recognition that they deserve. Father, as we continue to pursue your heart towards racial reconciliation make us builders of bridges and not of walls.
