God of Truth, do not let our fears get the better of us. Give us courage. By your Spirit, pour into every Christian heart the discernment of truth so that we might refuse to be part of any system that takes unfair advantage of others. Open our eyes to see Christ already at work in the world and infuse our collective imagination with a bold plan to mirror Christ’s peace. Allay our fears and let our hands be strong, for it is in You that we trust. Amen.
