LORD, we cry out to you
because of the divisions among people in this nation.
Many people earn their living
fomenting discord and hatred of others.
Violence is everywhere,
and we need your salvation.
There is so much misery we can barely stand to look.
Destruction and violence are everywhere.
We are surrounded by people who love to argue and fight.
The law has become paralyzed.
There is no justice in the courts.
It seems the wicked outnumber the righteous so much so that justice has become perverted.
LORD, have mercy and bring us to repentance for our parts in this failure to be civil and respectful.
Help us to seek the truth,
be willing to listen to each other,
and speak the truth in love.
LORD, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
