WEEK BEGINNING MAY 31, 2020
Holy God–Holy and Mighty–We lift our prayers for all the people around our country who suffer from racial injustices. There are riots all over our country in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Bring your peace and comfort to a country that is torn apart. Give peace to the family of George Floyd. Bring your truth and justice to the legal proceedings surrounding this tragedy. Give wisdom and guidance to the leaders in Minneapolis and around our country as they work for civility and justice.
