A Prayer for Martin Luther King Day

The following prayer was written as a responsive prayer for Martin Luther King Day¬†which commemorates Martin Luther King’s birthday. It is a day used to promote equal rights for all Americans, though I like to expand that to consider it as a day to promote equal rights for all people.

May we dream of a world made new,

Where together we shout for justice,

And as one we fight against oppression.

May we dream of a world made new,

Where together we seek God’s righteousness

And as one we sing God’s praise.

May we dream of a world made new,

Where together we climb God’s mountain,

And as one we enter the promised land.

May we dream of a world made new,

Where together we proclaim the good news of God’s kingdom,

And as one we enjoy its peace, and abundance and love.
