Prayer for August 26

Prayer for August 26: Please pray with me.  God who protects the stranger, the orphan, the widow – hear our prayer.  You are a God who protects the oppressed and the exploited.  You call on us – compel us actually – to follow in your footsteps.  Give us the courage to do this.  Why do we get more upset with people who make us aware of injustice done to the stranger, the orphan, the widow, rather than the injustice itself, O Lord?  Turn our hearts to follow your lead.  Amen.
