Prayers for all who campaign for justice and confront the powerful as advocates for the powerless
We continue to pray together this Community Liturgy – ‘I am for peace’ (page 1066 in Celtic Daily Prayer Book Two) – every day over seven days (and beyond). In doing so, as we light these daily candles, we pray for, and with, our brothers and sisters in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, other neighbouring countries and all affected by the consequences of this war.
TODAY we light the fifth of our seven candles
Teach us not to feel powerless in the face of injustice.
- We remember those who confront the powerful
as advocates for the powerless.
- We light a candle…
The fifth candle is lit
and remember all who
campaign tirelessly that justice may come.
We lift their hands, and pray that they do not
become weary in their struggle.
Each day we will post part of the liturgy, as a focus for your prayers.
A short message from Carolyn Howard, our Welcome and Hospitality Lead at Nether Springs – our mother house – can be viewed below.
