Prayer for Transgender Persons

Today is a national Day of Remembrance for transgender persons. We offer this prayer:

Fierce and Tender God,

in whose image all persons are made,

we remember your children whose identities do not conform

to simplistic gender labels.

In these days of intolerance and violence, hear their cries.

Surround them with your protection

and reassure them with your peace.

May they find in us true friends

and in this church a reliable sanctuary;

through Jesus Christ

in whose name we are baptized

neither male nor female

but as one beloved family of God. Amen.
