Prayer for May 14

Prayer for May 14: Please pray with me.  God of the oppressed, the question that rises up is “how long?”  How long, oh Lord?  How long will those without a voice be silenced.  How long will those who are without power be squashed?  How long will those who are not considered normal be subject to rejection just for being who they are?  How long will divisions be allowed to determine people’s worth and value?  How long will the -isms continue to choke humanity to death?  How long?  How long will the poor be stuck in a black hole with no way out?  How long?  The day is coming when the world will be flipped right side up again.  When there will be restoration, renewal, and transformation.  We look forward to that day.  And we seek to bring that day forward.  Guide us on our paths as you invite us to participate in the unfolding of your kingdom.  Amen.
