A Prayer for Victims of Injustice
For all those who have fallen victim to hatred and inhumanity, for those loved ones
who are left behind to mourn, for the souls of those whose hearts are cold, Lord, hear
For the children who are being born into this world of conflict and violence, for
women and mothers who suffer needlessly, Lord, hear our prayer.
For all those who have been forced into unemployment, who long to return to work,
for all those who struggle to support their families, Lord, hear our prayer.
For the soldiers who are misguided in thinking that their bullets will bring about
peace, for those who feel called to conscientiously object to military orders, Lord,
hear our prayer.
For the children who cry in their beds at night and wonder “What have I done?”,
For the mothers and fathers who must try to explain the unexplainable, Lord, hear
For all the children who have died before their time, for the soldiers who allow their
uniform to strip them of their humanity, for the healers who are denied the
opportunity to use their gifts, Lord, hear our prayer.
For the redemption of souls of both victim and perpetrator, for those who commit
themselves to the forgiveness of sins, Lord, hear our prayer.
