Shepherding God, you seek out those who are poor and needy. In faith we pray: 

Just God, hear our prayer.  

Save those who are oppressed by war, political unrest, or corrupt leadership. 

Just God, hear our prayer.  

Prosper efforts to address systemic racial inequality and segregation. 

Just God, hear our prayer.  

Help us to ensure that every child has opportunity for quality education. 

Just God, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God, the giver of all good gifts and every blessing, send us the Spirit and fill our hearts with peace in Jesus. Amen.
