Holy God of Noah,
Whose love brought salvation to all from the floods of chaos and hatred:
In the Rainbow you gave your promise to all your creation-
A promise of love for the animals tall and small, spots and stripes, lion and lamb,
A promise of acceptance for the diversity and variety of your creation,
A promise of affirmation, belonging, and grace.
Like light shining through the prism,
Refract us to be the rainbow promise of love to the world.
Refocus our lives around your Gospel message of hope.
Redirect our vision to be the reflection of You, Jesus.
For you are the one who rises
Above the crowd’s violence,
Out of death’s dark tomb,
And to bring the rainbow light of resurrection, Amen.
