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.
