Two prayers for and with mothers who have lost sons to police violence: The first, from Rev. Dr. Carolyn Boyd, was offered at the “Voices of Grief and Struggle” panel on December 9. Excerpts appear below, and the full prayer appears in the video. The second, from Virginia Spatz, was inspired by participation in the 4-1/2-hour “die in” at the Dept. of Justice on December 8 and written for the mothers’ delegation.
In today's society, mothers of black and brown boys are forced into a leap of faith similar to the biblical Hannah's as their growing sons must be trusted to a world beyond their own powers of protection. (Sam 1:1-28) This campaign asks all -- regardless of gender -- to pray for our sons. (See Prayer Schedule/Communities).
