A Prayer for Today | John Philip Newell

Be strong, O my soul,

Be strong this day

To face this moment and feel its pain

To cry with our mothers and weep for our daughters

To stand by our fathers and sons of colour

And defend our true brothers and sisters of the Qu’ran

To serve compassion rather than fear

To invoke wisdom instead of ignorance

 To elect humility over false pride

Be strong, O my soul,

Be strong this day

Be strong this day for love.
