A PRAYER FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH
God of Creation, whose son, Jesus prayed "that they all may be one", send your Spirit to help us unite.
Give us the willingness to embrace people of all hues with their stories of struggle and triumph.
Help us to recognise especially at this time, the contributions made to this global village by your children of African descent.
We pray this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
