Heavenly Father,

Thank you for being a God of love, mercy and justice.

Thank you for using me to carry out your work in the world.

Thank you for preparing me for my specific calling, my way to serve.

Even though I cannot fix the world, give me the desire to change it.

Even though I cannot do everything, give me the opportunity to do something.

Even though there is always a cost in pursuing justice, give me the courage to pay that cost.

You have called me to pursue justice

–    A must do

–    Not a choice

–    My duty

–    My responsibility

Give me the ability to be still, pray, open my heart, and listen for You.

Then, grant me the courage to take Your hand in mine,

The strength to hold on tight, and

The perseverance to stand strong through both the excitement and monotony of my calling.

Provide to me the honor and blessing to serve alongside others, for together we stand stronger.

May I stand for those who cannot stand for themselves.

May I speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.

May I love those who know no love.

May I fight for those who have no fight left.

May I hope for those whose hope has been stolen.

May I walk in awe as you lift others up as a result of my saying YES to Your people,

Your invitation to pursue justice in this world, and

Your calling on my life.

Amen.
