Praying for Justice

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty and Merciful Father,

All praise and honor be to you,

for you alone are justice and

plead the case for the immigrant, the widow, and the orphan

when our voices are silent.

We confess that too frequently look the other way,

preferring to tolerate murder and abuse

when our livelihood or pride is threatened or

we simply do not want to be bothered.

Forgive our hardened hearts,

but do not leave us in our state of sin.

Teach us to love the unloveable

reflecting your image and example.

We give thanks for your mercy and boundless generosity.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

heal our cold hearts and

grant us the strength to walk in your ways.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
