Prayer for White Folks

(This prayer is attributed to 6 year-old Ruby Bridges. She said it twice a day, before and after school, when she became the first black child to go to William Franz Elementary School in New Orleans. Local authorities refused to assist in the federally ordered integration. The year was 1960.)

Please God,
try to forgive these people.
Because even if they say those bad things,
They don't know what they're doing.
So You could forgive them,
Just like You did those folks a long time ago
When they said terrible things about You.
