Praying for Justice

Tilt the scales, O God of the mustard seed: That the poor shall see Justice.

Share the feast, O God of Eden’s abundant garden: That each crop may fetch a fair price.

Upset the tables, O God of the upside down Kingdom: That the least can benefit from their trade.

Open our eyes, O God of life in all its fullness: that we may learn to walk the way of your Son, tilting, sharing, upsetting this world not satisfied until the products we bring to our table give a better deal to all who hunger for one. In His name. Amen.
