God of peace,
God of justice
God of freedom,
We give you thanks for your cadences of peace, justice, and freedom
Cadences that have surged
through the lives
and all that nameless mass of
risk-takers who have been
obedient to your promises
and susceptible to your dreams.
Deliver us from amnesia
concerning their courage in the face of violence,
their peace-making against hate,
and their hunger for you in a devouring economy.
Deliver us from amnesia:
turn our memory into hope,
turn our gratitude into energy,
turn our well-being into impatience.
That these same cadences of your will may pulse even among us.
