Day 32

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."

Micah 6:8

Almighty 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.
