Loving God, we confess that sometimes we lose sight of hope in the face of trials. We allow fear and doubt to overshadow our faith.  

At times, we have not created the safe and brave spaces needed by our LGBTQIA+ siblings. Forgive us for our moments of weakness and for the times we failed to support others in their struggles. Renew our hearts, strengthen our resolve, and help us to embody Your love and hope.  

Transform us into beacons of persistence and resilience, shining Your light in the darkest places. Help us to stand with the marginalized and resist all forms of hate. Amen. 

Rev. Derek Terry Program Director, Open and Affirming Coalition UCC
