God of Mercy and Justice,
Set our feet and minds on the path that will lead to real and meaningful change. Help us as we seek to live lives that honor Christ, and to be aware of those around us who are bending under an oppressive and unjust system.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, that we fail not them nor You.
Save us from weak resignation to the systems and injustices that rage against everything you stood for. May we never stop striving to create the kindom on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, serving You whom we adore.
(Adapted from the hymn "God of Grace and God of Glory" by Harry Emerson Fosdick)
