"Holy and righteous God, you created us in your image. Grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil and to make no peace with oppression. Help us like your servant Martin to use our freedom to bring justice among peoples and nations, to the glory of your name; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." (Lutheran Book of Worship)
Today we remember the martyrdom of Martin Luther King, Jr., and praise God for his witness and dream of a better society.
