Forgive us Lord for our apathy, for our lack of courage to speak out.

Forgive us when we walk past and don't offer help.

Forgive us when we get it wrong.

We confess that we are afraid -

We don't want to overcome our hidden doubts and prejudices in order to be alongside those who are different from ourselves.

We ask that you would lead us into action : give us strength to be a voice crying for justice and peace.

Help us to step into another person's shoes, or if they have no shoes, then not to be afraid to take off our own.

Peel off our preconceptions and assumptions, uncurl and spread out our toes, and tread in their footprints.

May we be a liberating presence and offer love, compassion and whatever is needed to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.
