"I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk your step will not be hampered; and if you run, you will not stumble." (Proverbs 4:11-12)

Gracious God, we remember Your servant Martin Luther King who walked in the path that You led him to take, to teach us to love one another and not let race or color or labels get in the way of doing what You have taught us is right. Help each of us to continue along this path so our work here may help and direct all men and women to the path of righteousness and courage. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
