Prayer for Harare

God, who weeps today
with mourning families,
who runs with protestors
along the streets,
who is icon-meshed
in gates covering shops,

who is the stone in the heart,
more than the stone in the hand
prepared to throw –

wrap your arms around
your so long suffering child
Zimbabwe –
beautiful Zimbabwe,
generous Zimbabwe.

Too long, too long
deep and deeper the longing
for peace, peace with justice,

God, we pray, peace with hope. Amen
