Harry Potter Prayer

I have not read the books. I have seen some of the movies. It defintily has lots of theology to chew on. Here is a taste of one person's thoughts on this:

(from Sojo.net - The Harry Potter Prayer by Betsy Shirley)
Almighty God, we praise you for creating all things in your image: muggles and wizards, beasts and humans, the magical and the mundane.

Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts. Remind us that our hope does not lie in philosopher’s stones or deathly hallows, but only in your hallowed name.
Merciful God, teach us to walk humbly. We confess that we often raise our wands at the evil we see in the world, ignoring the darkness lurking in ourselves.

Forgive us for creating social systems that marginalize and oppress. Stir our hearts to build relationships with house elves, muggles, squibs, and all who are made vulnerable by injustice. Give us courage to advocate on their behalf, confronting those who would exclude them from our communities...
