Prayer For Court Issues
Loving heavenly Father, thank You that You are a God of justice and the Lord of righteousness and that You are also the source of all truth and the well-spring of all wisdom. We lift up today all those that are involved in court cases, whether it is the one who is being accused or those that are involved in the execution of fairness and justice.
We pray that You would lead and guide all those that are involved in the corridors of justice and provide them with the integrity to officiate without bias and bigotry.. and the wisdom and grace to discern the truth and to act upon it, without fear or favor.
We pray for those that are having to appear in the witness stand and ask that You would bring to their mind the unembellished truth and that their testimony is not tainted from their own developed prejudices.
We do lift up those that are in the position of being brought to court to defend their own innocence or to confess their actual guilt, and we pray that all judicial proceedings would be carried out with a fair hearing and an impartial verdict. This we ask in Jesus name,
Dear Father, Our hearts cry out for justice, for fairness, for equality, for restoration. Come, come into this courtroom with us. Come Holy Spirit presence yourself amongst us and within us as we seek to be understood. Reveal the truth, throw light on the darkest places to bring justice. Protect us from the lies of the enemy that seek to pull us down and guard our hearts from anything that creates fear in our lives. Lord, we stand on holy ground. Thank you that we are adopted into your family. Thank you that no matter what happens we are secure and safe within your love and grace. So we go boldly into this court hearing knowing you are with us, and will lead us through this time with your hand in ours. Amen.
Father, we lay before you our anxieties and concerns about this court case. You know our journey to this place, the struggles, the heartache and the difficulties. Please cover every aspect of the hearing, from the judgement of the judge and jury, to the details revealed in this session. Holy Spirit please presence yourself with us as we testify. Come calm our troubled hearts and minds with your eternal peace and help us to remember that your hand is upon us. Thank you that you will lead us through this hard time into a new season of hope and rest. We pray all this in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ our Lord and King. Amen.
St Expeditus, Patron of Youth, Advocate in Urgent Cases, and Mediator in Lawsuits, for a quick solution to a problem or to cure procrastination
St Expeditus (4th Century) was a young Roman soldier, believed to have been martyred for his Faith at Militene, Armenia. He is very powerful to bring speedy help in urgent cases.
St Expeditus, we humbly beg thee to come to our aid so that thy prompt and certain intercession will obtain for us, from our Divine Lord, the grace of a happy and swift solution to the matter which now concerns us. (Mention your intention.) We do so without
fear, being fully confident in the supreme wisdom of Our Blessed Lord, and place our trust in Him without reservation, being mindful that His will alone will be done.
Grant us, Lord God, a vision of your world as your love would have it:
a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God, you have given all peoples on common origin.
It is your will that they be gathered together
as one family in yourself.
Fill the hearts of humankind with the fire of your love
and with the desire to ensure justice for all.
By sharing the good things you give us,
may we secure an equality for all
our brothers and sisters throughout the world.
May there be an end to division, strife, and war.
May there be a dawning of a truly human society
built on love and peace.
We ask this in your name.
"Almighty and eternal God, may your grace enkindle in all of us a love for the
many unfortunate people whom poverty and misery reduce to a condition of life unworthy of human beings.
Rouse in the hearts of those who call you Father a hunger and thirst for social justice and for fraternal charity in deeds and in truth.
Grant, oh Lord, peace in our days; peace to our country, and peace among nations.
We have prayed for repentance, but those prayers have gone unanswered.
Now, as much as it grieves us to do so, we pray for Judgment in this situation.
We know that You know the end from the beginning, and we only want Your will. If it is time for Judgment, Lord, may it come swiftly.
If, however, there is still room for repentance then we ask that You grant a space for that repentance.
Either way, God, let us trust You in all things.
