A Prayer for Justice in America

Luke 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Prayer (Read out Loud):
Father, I pray for a spirit of repentance to come upon police and soldiers and the overall justice system in America. I pray that they would
– do violence to noone
– stop accusing people falsely
– be content with their wages so they’ll stop abusing their authority to get extra money.

In Jesus Name, Amen

And for all you so-called Christians that like to deflect reality:

Job 8:3 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

Psalm 82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Psalm 119:121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.

Proverbs 21:3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

Isaiah 56:1 Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

Isaiah 59:4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised…

It’s not a “victim mentality” to honestly acknowledge reality & history while moving forward.

It’s an “oppressor mentality” to conveniently ignore reality & history while moving forward.
