Black Lives Matter / Candle of Justice - Thursday 25th May 2023


Black Lives Matter Event at the MK Rose 

Candle of Justice 2023

Christians and churches are invited to join together to light a candle, pray for racial justice and commit to taking action.

Join Churches Together in England on Thursday 25 May for the #CandleOfJustice as we focus on racial violence towards young people and renew the nation’s commitment to tackling racism.

CTE writes:

Our #CandleOfJustice theme this year is inspired by the tragic, racially-aggravated, killing of Dea-John Reid who then sadly experienced a miscarriage of justice.

This is the third year that we have invited Christians to join together in prayer on the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder.

The #CandleOfJustice will be a moment to light a candle, pray for racial justice and commit to taking personal and institutional action to tackle racial injustice in our society and our churches.

We are encouraging Christians and churches up and down the country to get involved and pray the Candle Of Justice prayer on 25 May.

The Candle of Justice Prayer 2023

Gracious, merciful God of justice, love and peace we thank you for the lives of young people.

We pray for young people across the nation and in particular for the family and community of Dea-John Reid.

We pray that you will continually console them through their grief as they suffer the untimely loss of their dear child.

We pray for their campaign of jury reform and that civic and church systems and institutions will always fulfil their duty to serve and protect all.

Finally, we continue to pray for young people across the nation who have suffered from racially motivated experiences and that society will be a safe and flourishing space where their unique giftings and callings can bless the world.
