…..for all.

 

 

Look with compassion, O God upon the people in this land who live with

injustice, terror, disease, and death as their constant companions.

Have mercy upon us.

Help us to eliminate cruelty to those our neighbors.

Strengthen those who spend their lives

establishing equal protection of the law and equal opportunities for all.

And grant that every one of us may enjoy

a fair portion of the abundance of this land;

through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord….

O God, Sovereign of the universe,

without you nothing is true, nothing is just.

In your Word you reveal the way of love.

By your Spirit you make it possible. 

From greed and selfishness,

from a society in which the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,

compassionate God, deliver us.

From radical prejudice and religious intolerance, from a society which

makes its weakest and most recent members into scapegoats,

compassionate God, deliver us.

From indifference to the needs of other countries, from the delusion that

you love any other nation less than you love us,

compassionate God, deliver us.

From self-indulgence and indifference,

from a society in which fidelity and responsibility have little place,

compassionate God, deliver us.

Author of life,

give us hearts set on the coming of your reign;

give us wise, just, and humble leaders;

give all who live in this land a will to live in peace,

through Jesus Christ,

the One who is above all powers and dominions. Amen
