Taking Off the Masks!

Masks made by Renay Intisar Jihad

Let’s take a deep breath. Pray…

Dear God,
Help us!
Uncover what’s hidden behind our masks.
Help us O God!

Breathe with a fresh understanding.

Yes, uncover hatred, racism and tainted privilege.

You’ve removed the masks and allowed many to breathe.

No more of “you can’t…but I can!”

O God, Light of the world. You’ve torn off the mask and awakened the dead. Unbound Lazarus is awake and without his mask!

Holy One! Shine your Light!

Illuminate a path for healing, reconciliation, recovery and renewal .

Magnify Peace! Righteousness !

Love Divine, Merciful Savior,

Help us inhale your love.
Help us resolve our country’s history of slavery, racism, innocent blood shed, and bigotry.
Help us resolve the ways we are complicit and complacent.

Many eyes are now open to the horrors of racism and racial divide that’s designed to overpower those who suffer and endures the torment.

It’s more than a nightmare.

It’s so much about conquering, overpowering and fear.

Remove the masks! Reveal the scars, purulence and abscess.

Debridement! Dig deep!

We need a Debridement!

Remove the dead and the infected parts!

Dig deep into America’s history of slavery. Extract the false narratives. Remove the rotten wisdom? tooth!?!

A root canal. Explore and extract all that is rotten and full of pain.

Dear God,

Hear our prayers.

Help us understand when unarmed Black and Brown men, boys and women are a threat greater than a gun.

Please God, have mercy!

Black Lives Matter to You God!

Black Lives Matter to us!
Black Lives must matter to All!

Time out! Time out!
Time without masks that hides our sins.

No more cover up.

No more covering our noses and avoiding the stench of racism.

God help us!
Take off our masks and witness what’s hidden.

Almighty God,

Shine a light on evil practices of racism, injustice and priveledge .

Merciful God,

Take off all masks!
Shine Your Holy Light on a righteousness path.

God help us!
Take off the masks! No coverups!
Shine a floodlight on our past, present and future.

May Your goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives. O that we may be a place for healing and renewal. Let us go. Give thanks, O God.

Embrace Your Holy presence.

We Park and Pray at 1:11. Amen
