Weekly Prayer

Weekly Prayer - Prayer for Justice

Lord Jesus, Carpenter and King,
supreme Sovereign of all men, 
look with tender mercy upon Your children 
who bear the indignities of injustice everywhere. 
Raise up leaders in every land 
dedicated to Your standards of order, equality and justice. 

Grant us, Lord Jesus, 
the grace to be worthy members of Your Mystical Body, 
laboring unceasingly to fulfill our vocation 
in the social apostolate of Your Church. 

Sharpen our intellects to pierce the pettiness of prejudice; 
to perceive the beauty of true human brotherhood. 
Guide our minds to a meaningful understanding of the problems of the poor, 
of the oppressed, of the unemployed, 
of all in need of assistance anywhere. 

Guide our hearts against the subtle lure of earthly things 
and undue regard for those who possess them. 
May we hunger and thirst after justice always.

Amen.
