Prayer Offered for January 19, 2023

Today, let us pray a modern day prayer of St. Francis:

Lord, make me an instrument of Your justice.

Where there is discrimination, let me effect equity.

Where there is exploitation, let me show respect.

Where there is prejudice, let me bring awareness.

Where there is abuse, let me assist with healing.

Where there is manipulation, let me reveal truth.

Where there is violence, let me model peace.

And where there is oppression, let me share freedom.

Gracious God, grant that in all situations, with all people, I may be an instrument of Your justice, enfolding all of creation in Your love.—AMEN.
