Prayer for October 9

Prayer for October 9: Please pray with me.  God of the afflicted, through your prophet Amos, you tell us that you love good and have evil.  You come to the defense of the outcast, you raise up the poor, you defend the needy, you comfort the afflicted.  There are many in our world who fall into these categories, just as there were during Amos’ prophecy.  You call on us to establish justice.  How do we do that Lord, especially when you tell us that the time is evil?  But tell us, has there been a time after sin entered the world that hasn’t been evil?  You know the transgressions and the sins of those who trample on the poor, those that afflict the righteous, and are corrupt – you tell us this through your prophet Amos.  We raise up our hands and our voices to you.  Come.  Establish justice.  Amen.
