King Day Prayer, Looking Forward
Gracious Creator God, you have called us to this place this evening to give thanks and celebrate the life and witness of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now as our eyes behold the darkness of evening, we recall that great light you sent into this world in the person of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We acknowledge that Dr. King is this nation's Moses, for he led us through the Red Sea of racism in a Passover that frees us from the bondage of hate and racism. We rejoice in the fruits of this Passover as we look forward to the inauguration of President Obama. Amen.
--Brother John Baptist, OSF, FODC
