A Prayer for Justice

VICAR

Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I trust that You are well and hopeful this December Sunday morning. I am sure that like me Your weekend has been fruitful and most enjoyable too.

This week let us pray for justice, for the light to shine over the choices before us. It is election week and it’s also a time of year when we put family first, second and third in our lives, so we should be keen to decide well and keep family happy.

This is also a time of year when we should look around at all that we possess while recognising that in other countries there are people eating out of rubbish bins (Venezuela), working in all hours in fear and cold (North Korea) and barely surviving (Yemen). We should be thankful that what occupies our minds most of the time is not the next meal, worrying about bombs overhead or thinking where we shall sleep for the night.

Let us hope there is justice in the General Election. Let’s hope the police expose any electoral fraud and corruption.

This is also a time of year to shake the tree and to be in the best shape possible coming into a new year. A time for exposing truth and cutting out the negatives and the unnecessary.

I wish You all well this Sunday. I pray that You too have a happy and peaceful week. That You keep on winning in style while those who follow the wrong path wake up and recognise the errors of their ways. God Bless.

Dear Lord,

We praise you for your love and faithfulness towards your children. We praise you for being a perfect, holy, trustworthy God that is bigger than all the evil we experience here on earth. We ask that you give us eyes to see when evil is before us, hearts to hate evil and the desire to flee from its presence. We ask that you would not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil and draw us closer to yourself. We wish to take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead continue to expose them however annoyed they become. We ask these things through Jesus’ precious name.

Amen.
