Prayers that Destroy the Spirit of Racism
Download this guide for 5 ways to pray for racial healing, justice and reconciliation
Our response to the individual sins and societal structures perpetuating racism is one of fervent prayer. As followers of Jesus, this prayerfulness dismantles works of darkness while we pursue bold works of mission and justice. Intercession rooted in God’s Word inspires the heart transformation and wisdom we long for in addressing the complex issues of racism today.
Prayer invites the Holy Spirit to grow love for those different from us and enables power in rebuilding the dividing fault lines of society exposed by the injustices of racism. The Bible offers us a challenging yet simple formula for godliness that guides our prayers and informs our actions today:
“The Lord has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our God.” Micah 6:8 GNT
As we seek God’s justice, racial healing, and reconciliation in our nation, let us be encouraged by the truths of Scripture. We created, “Prayers that Destroy the Spirit of Racism” to strengthen your faith and guide your intercession against racism. May you be inspired in your prayers and ignited in love as God’s Word infuses you with new life.
