A Prayer for Nonviolence in Honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Day, January 20


And God grant that we will continue to move on all men of goodwill,
and all those who are confronted with oppression in this world will move on with this method.
Not with the method of violence,
not with the method of retaliatory violence,
not with any method that seeks to retaliate,
but the method that seeks to redeem.

From "Thou, Dear God": Prayers That Open Hearts and Spirits, by Martin Luther King, Jr.
