Prayer for Transgender Remembrance Day

Hillsborough United Church of Christ Prayer for Transgender Remembrance Day

O Sacred Creative One, source of life, we remember today our Transgender sisters and brothers whose lives are too often unnecessarily hard, fearful and uncertain. We remember those who have been attacked and beaten for being who they are. We remember the 21 transgender persons killed in our country and many others around our world.  We seek again, today, the sacred light of Your understanding, compassion and love that may open our eyes and enable us to see in the face those who we classify as different the face of another one of your children. We confess that at times we have failed to stand up, speak out and welcome our brothers and sisters as you have called us to do. May we be the instruments of your peace as we pray with Jesus that Your realm of justice, inclusion and peace will come on earth. Amen
