This mornings prayer is taken from Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals by Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove and Enuma Okoro. This prayer book is laid out with ordinary prayer to guide and focus your devotional life. The focus of today’s prayer is on God’s love and ability to uproot injustice, a message which much of the world needs to hear today.
God of mercy,
You cast the mighty from their thrones and lift up the lowly.
Free us from the ghettoes of poverty and the ghettoes of wealth
That we might meet on the level ground at the foot of the cross.
Read: Psalm 113: 4-7
May our prayers lead to action which will usher in the kingdom.
