around our world, both at home and abroad. We pray for cooler heads, respect for one another, and saner solutions. We pray for the courage to love all God’s children. We pray that black lives will matter to all. We pray that law enforcement officials will be safe in their work, and that God’s house in all places will safe space and sanctuary for all who enter.
