A Prayer For Social Justice
"He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the
Lord require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk
humbly with your God."
You are a God of justice, mercy and boundless goodness.
As disciples of Christ, You call us to mimic Your actions
of goodness, mercy, love and justice to those who are
sidelined in the world. Forgive us for turning a blind eye to
the marginalized, oppressed, victimized and forgotten in our
society. Lord Jesus, Your life and ministry revealed the Father’s
heart of mercy, justice and love. You were the model of the
Father’s love in action.
Holy Spirit, quicken our hearts to speak up for those without a
voice and to stand up for those who are defenseless. Remind us
again and again that the posture of Your kingdom is humility.
We lay our pride at Your feet that You might clothe us afresh in
humility as we walk this journey of faith with You. May we live
as Jesus modeled for us to the glory of Your name. Amen.
