Brandon Teena
Hate crime victims

I just finished watching the movie "Boys Don't Cry" about the true story of Brandon Teena, who was murdered in 1993 -- a victim of a hate crime. Murdered in reaction to the revelation that "he" was biologically a "she".

This prayer group is dedicated to those like Brandon who are singled out, harassed, and killed for reasons of gender and sexual orientation. They are our brothers, sisters, relatives, co-workers, and neighbors. I pray that they find peace within themselves, with their loved ones, and in their communities. May those who seek to harm them turn from their violence and hatred, and find peace. This is a special prayer for them, although it can be expanded to include all people who find themselves the victims of hate. Thanks

Please help people to develop tolerance of those who are not like themselves, and to celebrate the differences between all of us as human beings. Free us from our own ignorance, and keep us from hating those who are different. Father, free the minds and souls that are held captive by hatred and intolerance, and help them to find peace in Your love. Bless all those that have been victims of hate crimes, and help them to become stronger people. Let us all be humble and recognize our own flaws before we point them out in others. May Your love be with us always, and give us peace.
In Jesus' name

Dear God,
Please protect those who are different than us from the hate and discrimination that surrounds us. Please give these intolerant people the courage to open their hearts and minds to their fellow human beings regardless of colour or sexual orientation. All of us are brothers and sisters in your eyes.
