You have searched us oh Lord —
Prejudice lurks in every heart.
Racism in every mind.
Though they may hide themselves from consciousness,
they take root.
Lord, search us and know our heart.
We confess and grieve our sins
as well as those of our country and world.
Lead us oh God in the way everlasting,
as we commit ourselves to the long journey of fighting against systemic, interpersonal and individual racism in our hearts, homes, country and world.
