Pray for Victims of Injustice

  • Pray for the people who experience injustice. They are people who are poor, people who are unemployed, people in rural and remote areas, people who experience discrimination because of race, religion, gender, disability or sexuality, etc. Pray for the God of justice to deliver these people from injustice and make a way for their healing.
  • Pray for the people who cause injustice. They may act in many different ways, from committing overt violence to opposing attempts to prevent exploitation or reduce poverty. Ask God to change their hearts, to spur them to repentance, to draw them out of their sin and to himself.
  • Pray for the people who have the power to change the situation. They are governments, community groups, churches, unions, and businesses, and others. Ask God to inspire them with practical solutions and the means to help.
  • Pray for the local community whose attitudes affect what actions politicians and others take to remedy injustices, that God would give them his perfect perspective.
