“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 homeless. 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.
