A Prayer for Pride
You created us in your image,
And saw that what you had made was good.
We thank you for the gift of our diversity,
for the beauty of our sexuality and gender identity,
and for the gift of our LGBTQ community.
We pray for those who are filled with fear and doubt,
and for our LGBTQ family throughout the world
who are persecuted or oppressed;
that your love, justice and peace
may be extended to all people,
and our love for one another
mirror yours for all your children.
May the rainbow of our lives,
reflect the glory of your image in us.
