Lutheran Introduction to Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, & Gender Expression

In honor of Pride Month 2020, Kent Lutheran recognizes our LGBTQIA+  community and those standing in solidarity with this prayer.

 

In the name of the divine Trinity, let us pray.

God, you have called us into being through love.

You have joined us to one another in love.

How good and pleasant it is when your people dwell together in unity.

 

Shine your light upon your LGBTQIA+ children,

that we can see the glory of eternal life.

Grant each of these individuals the strength

to carry your blessing from this place to the next.

May they be at home in any land,

for all the earth is yours.

May their hopes be set on your kin-dom of justice and peace.

May the lamp of your word guide their feet on the unsure paths of life.

 

Our lives are but a breath, but our breaths are drawn from your divine Spirit.

You have created us as walking paradoxes. Specks of dust and divine-image bearers.

We are constantly restless until we rest in you.

Grant them a deeper fullness of being and spirit,

by carrying the memory of this time and this place in the coming journey.

May their work ahead be fuller in glory and joy,

now bearing new shape, as our work transforms and supplements one another.
