Prayer (2nd Sunday after Pentecost)

P

God of justice for the oppressed,
shake us and wake us so we may hear the voices of those considered least.
We pray for those who are oppressed.
We pray for those in slavery.
We pray for those who are exploited.
We pray for those who are discriminated against.
Give us the strength to stand up for justice
and preach the good news of freedom to the captives.
Give us the strength to do what is right
and represent your reign here on earth.
Shake and wake those who lead and those in power,
so that all people may truly be set free.
Amen.
