Holy One,

To the one who is a living word
and breaths life into our own words
strike down destructive words,
words of rancor and division,
words meant to achieve an end
other than love,
words that strip our faith of wonder
and replace it with mechanical certainty,
words that promote agitation
and limn the borders of hatred,
words where sensationalism
appears more prophetic
than truth or a still small voice,
words more concerned with creeds
than revelations,
words that dismiss
instead of including,
words that are irrational and absurd,
words that deny our mortality
as people, institutions or denominations,
words that betray
the mercy that we have seen,
words that illicit fear or tears in others,
words that destroy long after
they have left our pen or lips.
Convert these kind of words
into a bountiful gift of grace.

Holy One of Israel, our Father in Heaven and of our Lord Jesus Christ:

We pray that you would open the eyes of the blind, that they would understand and embrace the faith once delivered for us as inscribed in Your Holy Word. May the scales fall from their eyes as did Paul’s on the road to Damascus, so that their rage and hatred would turn to repentance and agape love.

Help them to understand your ways, and enable them to turn from darkness to Your marvelous light.

We know that this is possible only by Your grace as revealed in Jesus Christ, the Living and Incarnate Word as faithfully described by Your prophets and apostles and now found within the pages of the living Word of God, sharper than any two-edged sword man can devise.

Deliver them from evil imaginations and desires, and fill them with true, holy, passions and not the base passions of the flesh.

Only You, Father, can do this.

We ask in Jesus’ Almighty, Infinite, Matchless Name….Amen.
