A prayer for inauguration day

Spirit of Life and Love, we live in a fragmented world that tempts us to despair.

We would put it back together, piece by piece, if it were ours to choose.

But sometimes the fragments are enough.

In a world of cruelty, there is still power in every act of kindness.

In a time of doubt, there is still power in every act of hope.

In an age of division, there is still power in every act of unity.

May we remember that sometimes the fragments of meaning we make are just the right size to hold in our hands.
