Prayer is an essential piece of the action for a healthier, more equitable planet. Prayer and action are two sides of the same coin. Action without prayer can become angry, self-righteous, and devoid of true communication; prayer without action can be hollow without the expression of loving, communal efforts.
Keep my anger from becoming meanness.
Keep my sorrow from collapsing into self-pity.
Keep my heart soft enough to keep breaking.
Keep my anger turned towards justice, not cruelty.
Remind me that all of this, every bit of it, is for love.
Keep me fiercely kind.
– Laura Jean Truman
