Justice
Prayers

A Prayer when Feeling Lost or Afraid

God of justice,

we see so much pain and hurt and division,

and we cry out to you and ask why:

Why is there so much agony?

So much suffering?

So much injustice?

 

Yet in the midst of our ‘‘whys,’’

we trust.

Trust in your goodness.

Trust in your provision.

Trust that, even now,

you are in midst of reconciling

and making things right.

 

Be present to those in need,

and bring your healing power of love to us all.

Amen.

A Prayer for the Marginalized

Spirit of truth,

show us the way.

Show us the path of compassion,

the way of integrity,

and the light of truth.

 

May we align our values

with your heart for the poor,

the disenfranchised,

the vulnerable and the marginalized.

 

Reveal what needs to be done

in our work and in our community.

 

For your sake

and for the good of those in need we pray.

Amen.
