Prayer for Justice

As we reflect on the events of the past couple of weeks let us pray for Justice.

Mighty and Merciful God, lover of justice and equity, you call us to support the weak, to help those who suffer, and to honor all people.  By the power of your Holy Spirit, make us advocates for your justice and instruments of your peace, so that all may be reconciled in your beloved community, through Jesus Christ our Savior.

Gracious God keep us working and praying for the day when your justice will roll down like waters, and your righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.  Replenish our strength and stir up our hope as we look for signs of your coming reign. Fill us with the peace that passes understanding – the deep peace of Jesus Christ our Savior, in whose holy name we pray.
