Prayer for March 23, 2022
Prayer for March 23: Please pray with me. God of justice, hear our cry. Why do we fear the idea of justice? Why do we equate it with some kind of ideological tool in an ongoing war? Why do we twist it and shape it into something besides what you have called for justice to be. Justice is nothing more than a right relationship in community, fairness – a form of shalom. It is not something to be feared, but rather embraced as something that frees people from bondages. Yet many resist the ending of injustice. How twisted is that? How in the world anyone thinks they benefit from an unjust system is unfathomable. End injustice, and free people from the lie that they benefit from it. Amen.
Call to Action: Examine what you believe. Is it oriented towards freeing people, or restricting and judging people? Which do you think God wants?
