Treatment of the Poor
we know the poor and oppressed
cry out to you,
and you have commanded us
to respond to their needs.
Forgive us for failing
to defend the oppressed or
failing to show pity
for the weak and the needy.
Cause us to rescue them and
help redeem them from violence,
for their lives are precious to you.
Remind us that if we shut our ears
to the cries of the poor,
you may ignore us in our own times of need.
LORD, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Based on Psalm 72:12-14, Proverbs 21:13
