Prayer for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Heavenly Father
Open my eyes to …
Peaceful things in life.
Songs of peace.

Seeds of understanding.
Goodness in all people.
The spirit of each human being I encounter today.
Open my eyes to …
The world around me.
Needs around me.
Outer appearances that can mislead.
Dangers of injustice and misunderstanding.
People we need to understand.
The hunger and thirst of our sisters and brothers.

Open my eyes to …
The larger world.
The value of humanity everywhere.
Open my eyes to …
All people, whom God loves.
All the species, whom God cares about on this earth.
The beauty and abundance of God’s creation.
The grandeur of God’s creation in every person, place, and thing.

Open my eyes to …
Love around us.
The face of God in those we meet.
The Divine source of goodness in all peoples.
The Good that is available everywhere.
The power of forgiveness.

Guide me so that I don’t stand idly by.
Guide me to help according to Your will.
Guide me to know the difference between what
I want and what I need.

Dispel the delusion that someone else is responsible for my community, my nation, and my world.

Open my eyes to this new day and free me from the limitations of yesterday.

Open my eyes to …
The warmth of interfaith gatherings that build respect and understanding.
The potential in each of us to cross divides and build new friendships.

Open my eyes to …
God’s diversity.
