Lord we pray for the bankers and creditors,
That steals 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.
We know that 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 graves
That our consumption creates
And may we find reconciliation
With the Christ who though forsaken
Utters words of forgiveness.

Usher: Now this my kind of pastor, Deak. One who sees the dirt and calls it dirt!

Deacon: But you can’t pray against them Usher

Usher: Why not? Judgment is mine saith the Lord – he’s just prayin’ the Lord will carry out his judgment!
