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.
