The House of Bishops of the Anglican Province of America released the following statement on this date:
The House of Bishops of the Anglican Province of America expresses its sense of shock and dismay at the death of Mr. George Floyd. We pray for the blessed repose of his soul, and for the peace and comfort of his family.

In the name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we call for an immediate end to all forms of racism, injustice, violence, and lawlessness. May the peace of God which passeth all understanding unfold upon our country. Only through the divine mercy of Jesus Christ can this peace prevail for us. Let us continue to pray for our local communities and cities, our counties and states, our courts of justice, and our nation.

ALMIGHTY God, who hast created man in thine own image; Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil, and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice among men and nations, to the glory of thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God bless you.
