Prayer For Justice To Be Served
Do good to your servant
according to your word, Lord.
Teach me knowledge and good judgment,
for I trust your commands.
Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I obey your word.
You are good, and what you do is good;
teach me your decrees.
Lord God, Redeemer of all men, I come before you today to ask for justice in court. As the Scriptures say,
God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every matter and for every work.
It is my request that your judgment be manifest in court,
though men are fallible, through You justice can be had.
Thank you Lord Jesus, and hear my prayer.
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.
Dear Lord Jesus, You were the One that came to seek and to save that which was lost, and Lord there are many lost and hurting people in our world today that are having to comply with unjust government measures and rogue governors, whose decisions often leads to intense misery and pain. Be gracious to all who have been unjustly treated by unfair measures, and look down on them in pity and mercy I pray. Provide for all their needs, according to Your riches in mercy.
Turn the hearts of those leaders who have set aside godly principles, and who in their pride have followed a path of selfishness and greed back to You. And Father, in Your grace, I ask that You would intervene and show mercy on those that are being harmed and abused by their policies
Keep us Lord, from trying to address the ills of this world from a human perspective, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and power, against the spiritual rulers of this dark world. But thanks be to God Who has won the victory over them all, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Lord I know that You are coming back soon to right all wrongs and to wipe away all tears from our eyes, and so I place all the injustice on today's world before You asking that in Your time and in Your way You would right all the wrongs. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear Heavenly Father, You are my God and my Protector, and I pray that You would help me and save me and rescue me from those that are seeking to do me harm. Lord, I am being falsely accused and I feel as though those that are seeking to discredit me are hounding me like a pack of hungry wolves.
Oh Lord, I have sought to do only those things that are righteous in Your sight. If I had wronged anyone or harmed anyone without a cause then their relentless pursuit might be justified, but Father I have sought to live my life as unto You and yet they seek to damage me and destroy my character.
Lord, I hand this situation into Your almighty hands and pray that you would vindicate me. Stand up for me Lord, and remove these people that have such unfounded aggression against me far from me. Draw us all closer to You, whom to know is life and health and peace and hope. In Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Lord, thank You for the wonderful example of Your life, which was lived in spirit and truth. A life that demonstrated love as well as justice, a life that cared for all humanity, especially those who were weak or hurting or marginalised, or those who were sinking into a pit of despair or poverty.
Be close to all who are feeling the bitter winds of depression and scarcity their lives and uphold them with the warming breath of Your love and grace. Keep us we pray, from making wrong judgements about those that are suffering affliction or who have been overtaken by the challenges of poverty. Give us a wider perspective on life and a heart of compassion and kindness, especially on those that feel alone, unloved or uncared for.
May we become Your eyes and ears and may Your heart of love and grace flow through us to those that are in need. Look down in pity on all who are suffering loss, poverty or unjust discrimination at this time, and we pray that in Your best time Your justice will prevail in each of their lives. Thank You, Lord. We ask this in the name of Jesus,
Eternal Father, You created us in Your own image and likeness, but sin has warped the minds of men, and throughout the world there is much injustice and much carelessness of the rights of other people and personal responsibility.
Lord, when You are excluded from the hearts and consciences of men, the inevitable result is that people suffer and Lord, there is much injustice and corruption taking place in our world today, not only in the lives of individuals but also in the corridors of power and the council rooms of many nations.
We pray Lord, that You will right all the wrongs that are taking place in our world and vindicate those that are being treated unjustly. Keep us Father, from trying to take matters into our own hands for vengeance is Your and You will repay. But Lord, in Your grace and mercy, we pray that you would give justice and peace to all those that have been cruelly and unfairly treated by their fellow man, and may the injustice and carelessness that they have had to endure be the means to draw them into Your saving arms of grace. We ask this in the precious name of the Lord Jesus,
