Prayer Rant


Lord we pray for the bankers,

who steal from the poor,

They use unfair usury rates to wring out a yearly profit.

These illicit purveyors of unrealistic credit are predators

And feast off the vulnerable and weak.

We pray for the wealthy nations who

Grant loans to military dictators

Spreading the money amongst their junta

While imprisoning and starving their citizens.

They are the betrayers of the weak.

They scream the battle cry of personal responsibility

While participating in cronyism.

You will surely not forget their wrongs

On the Day of Judgment.

We pray for those who torture humans

More than victims are dehumanized

Break their rods and overturn raw power.

Be present in isolation cells

Hold the hands of those chained to floors,

Forced to squat,

Listening to the blare of music.

May we find peace amongst the graves

That our consumption creates

And may we find reconciliation

With the Christ who though forsaken

Utters words of forgiveness.
