Martin Luther King Day, USA

Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.’

 –Revd Dr Martin Luther King, Jr

Martin Luther King Day is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr.  It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, near King’s birthday, 15 January.

Holy God,

Grant us a heart full of grace,

And a soul generated by love,

That we may serve you and your world.

Thank you for all those who have shown us the way

And all those who ARE showing us the way.

Amen.
