A Prayer for the Feast Day of James Weldon Johnson

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Eternal God, we give thanks for the gifts that thou didst bestow upon thy servant James Weldon Johnson: a heart and voice to praise thy Name in verse. As he gave us powerful words to glorify you, may we also speak with joy and boldness to banish hatred from thy creation, in the Name of Jesus Christ; who with thee and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Scrolling down fairly quickly, I mistakenly read this as “Prayer for the Feast Day of Joss Whedon.” Bit of a double take, heh heh.
