As a congregation please join us in praying together for racial reconciliation. Below are some scripture guides to use as we repent, lament and seek God’s gracious hand in renewing our hearts across racial divides:

Psalm 10:1-18

v. 1 - Why, O LORD, do you stand far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? Prayerfully consider sinful actions and oppressive systems in our world, particularly those that create racial injustice. Lament the brokenness of our world and the wickedness that we witness around us even within the church. 

v. 12-15 - Arise, O LORD; God, lift up your hand, forget not the afflicted. Why does the wicked renounce God and say in his heart, “You will not call to account”? But you do see, for you note mischief and vexation, that you may take it into your hands; to you the helpless commits himself; you have been the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evildoer; call his wickedness to account till you find none.
Cry to the Lord for help. Ask God to do justice and to give you a heart like his - one that seeks to correct oppression and care for the vulnerable. 

v. 16-18 - The LORD is king forever and ever; the nations perish from his land. O LORD, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
Remember God’s character. He is our refuge. He welcomes and hears our prayers.

Further scripture to consider: Psalm 55:16-19, Psalm 18:1-3, Isaiah 58:10-11
