Merciful Justice guide us into action today and every day to help the streams of righteousness, equality, freedom, love, and compassion flow freely. Bound up and frozen by fearfulness and the habits of hatred, let us seek a different way, though that way be hard and require forgiveness and making amends, though that way means risk for all of us to give each other another chance. Merciful Justice give us another chance to redress the injustices we accept, such as more people incarcerated per capita than any other country on earth, such as continued disenfranchisement of those who have served their sentences, such as a lack of infrastructure and public services and greater pollution in poor areas. Merciful Justice guide us in action today and every day, to open our hearts, change our laws, and rebuild our societies, through steadfast love, bold compassion, and faithful risk. Amen.
