Lamenting for the Oppressed

Look with pity, O heavenly Father, upon the people in this
land who live with injustice, terror, disease, and death as
their constant companions. Have mercy upon us. Help us to
eliminate our cruelty to these our neighbors. Strengthen those
who spend their lives establishing equal protection of the law
and equal opportunities for all. And grant that every one of
us may enjoy a fair portion of the riches of this land; through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

-Book of Common Prayer

Pleading for Justice

Almighty God, who sits on the throne judging right: We
humbly plead for you to bless the courts of justice and the
magistrates in all this land; and give to them the spirit of
wisdom and understanding, that they may discern the truth,
and impartially administer the law in the fear of You alone;
through him who shall come to be our Judge, Your Son our
Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

-Book of Common Prayer
