A Prayer for Justice

Just and righteous God,

Your will be done on earth as in heaven.

Place me on the side of the oppressed. Where I knowingly or unknowingly oppress, open my eyes to your truth. Where I use my power unjustly or fail to use my power for justice, open my heart and lead me to repentance. Turn me around. Make me an instrument of your peace and your justice. Through the power of your Spirit, place me ever on the side of the oppressed.
