Invocation for MLK Day

Invocation for MLK Day

In the darkness
We have a choice
We can choose to succumb to the darkness
We can choose to bring forth light
In suffering
We have a choice
We can choose to become embittered
We can choose to bring healing
In pain
We have a choice
We can surrender to hopelessness
We can learn compassion
When dealt violence
We have a choice
We can choose the path of violence
We can become bringers of peace
Blessed is the one who chooses
Chooses the path of light when surrounded by darkness
Blessed is the one who learns to heal though suffering
Blessed is the one made compassionate by pain
Holy is the one who brings peace out violence
Breath Of Life
Soul Of Existence
Creator of light
Grant us the strength to choose
The wisdom to choose
Light
Healing
Compassion
Peace
Let us be fully human when those around us
Have forgotten their humanity
And let us say
Amen

    ….
    In pain
    We have a choice
    We can surrender to hopelessness
    We can learn compassion
