Prayer for April 18, 2023

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day and we find our world in an increasingly tenuous time, O God. Help us to not only remember those who were killed and suffered during that time, but to also look diligently for signs of something like that from happening again. Help us to stand up to bigotry, racism and other acts of hate that foment further action by people who want power. May we not see the other as enemy but as family. Help us to defend the weak and powerless. May the antisemitism that seems to be growing be stopped, and those whose are infected by hatred of the other be transformed into who you would have us be, O God of All. May your presence guide us now and always. Amen
