A prayer for justice

The occupiers spending the night in newly-dubbed "Liberty Square" (aka Zuccotti Park) are growing in numbers and coming under new pressure from NYPD. But spirits are good and the General Assembly meetings continue.

If you have eyes to see - this is God's dream of peace, equality, and harmony among different people coming into the world in a new way!

If you're the praying type, pray for Occupy Wall Street. And if you can get to New York, please do! Bring water & food while you're at it.

For Social Justice
Almighty God, who created us in your image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
