Prayer for the Fight

We thank God
that we are not
like the ones
who fight
with violence
and bloodshed.

Instead, we fight
with words and images,
tweets and memes,
dollars and budgets.

The weapons are different,
but the pain is just as real.

Lord,

If we are to fight,
may we fight for something
worth fighting for,

Not our ideologies,
or our egos,

But for what is right,
and for those who have no voice.

Amen
