Prayer Of Church

Struggle For A Just World


Be with us, O God

As we struggle for a more just world,

Yet remind us that our actions so often tighten the mesh that binds the oppressed.

Keep us form pride in our own strength,

And keep us from despair when evil seems entrenched.

Renew our trust in your good purposes for us all.

Give us the gift of discernment that we may know

When to strive in the power of your Spirit,

When to be still,

And when to wait for your deliverance.

Come in your good time,

But come soon.
