A Prayer for Lafayette

Almighty God,

You are Father, Son, and Spirit.
Yet You are one.
We see Your glory.
We want to reflect Your glory.

We are black and white.
Make us one so we can reflect Your glory. 

We are rich and richer.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are young and old.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are honor roll students and struggling students.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are creative thinkers and linear thinkers.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory.

We are male and female.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are political and apolitical.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are republicans and democrats.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are rejoicing and mourning.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are conservative and liberal.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are from north, south, east, and west.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory.

We are confident and fragile.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory.

We are introverts and extroverts.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

We are weak and strong.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory.

We are boisterous and quiet.
Make us one so we reflect Your glory. 

Make us one.
May our oneness reflect Your glory.

We pray in Jesus’s name,
AMEN
