Sick of all that’s bent, bruised and broken

“Father, I am weary of all that is wrong with the world – murder of the innocents, a smeared and wrecked creation, tyrant-oppressed poor, hunger-withered children, exploited women, forgotten elderly, invisible candleshomeless.  I long to see that all these enemies – yours and mine – will be, once for all, condemned, and all things crooked made straight.  Set me to making a way for your justice with renewed vigour.  In Jesus our Deliverer’s name we pray, amen.

Seeking God’s Face, prayers for Advent, Day 9.

For ravaged lives and broken hearts – in Connecticut and Calcutta, Regent Park and Ramallah, East Hastings and Ethiopia – come, Lord Jesus, come.
