Gracious God, you create us and love us and make us to live together in community. We thank you for Martin Luther King, Jr. and all your children who have been filled with your vision and who have worked to bring it into reality. Guide us to live by your vision, working to build the community where everyone is welcomed and valued, power is shared, and all your children know wholeness and well-being. Through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
