Prayer for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia
We give thanks for the sacredness of humanity. We affirm our call to witness and respond to human suffering and brokenness. Where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are persecuted or discriminated against, we must not keep silent. In observation of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, we lament the injustices faced by LGBTQ people in our communities and across the globe. Rooted in awareness, we pray for healing. Anchored in humility, we work for peace and justice. Guided by love, we hope for a world where all people are celebrated and loved, where their rights are secured, and where their sexual and gender diversity is valued. Amen.
