Prayer for Our Trancestors

Laura Conkle

We love and remember our trans siblings stolen from us this year. We love and remember all of our trancestors stolen from us throughout time and space.

Our hearts are broken. May we find the care in our community to keep grieving and keep loving and keep living.

Let us pray:

Life, Soul, Love ~ We call out to you in our grief and our rage. We call out to you in our terror and our exhaustion. Please help us to gather ourselves together and to each other. Give us strength. Give us comfort. Give us care.

Life, Soul, Love ~ We call out to you in our need for support and change. We call out to you in our dreams and wishes. Please help us survive. Please change the hearts and souls of those who directly bring us harm. Please change the hearts and souls of those who allow harm to come to us through their absence.

Life, Soul, Love ~ We call out to you in our sacred wholeness. We call out to you in our full humanity. Please sustain us as we love and fight for ourselves and our trans siblings right now and always. Please bring us to a day when we may live, whole and sacred, reasonably safe in the great wide world.
