Prayers For Justice

JOSHUA is a faith-based organization– being people of faith is what unites us and calls us to this work of justice. Many traditions, many individuals, many churches and houses of worship – all working together for common good.

Beginning this fall, JOSHUA’s Religious Leaders Caucus would like to invite all individuals, churches, and houses of worship to join us in praying for our community.  Our responsibilities and schedules may not allow us to be part of every action or task force meeting we would like to be a part of, but whatever our religious tradition, we all pray. 

Prayer is powerful – it is an action in and of itself.  Prayer with others can be even more impactful as it opens us to both God and the other. Let’s pray together to be molded into the Beloved Community.

Our Religious Leaders are inviting everyone to come together and ask the Divine One in whatever language is familiar to us, to bless our community, our country, our world, and to lead us forward in the work of justice.  

Each month we will have a specific focus, and each week a specific prayer.  Feel free to adapt these prayers in accordance with your tradition.

Please join us in adding these prayers to your personal prayer and into the prayers of petition your congregation shares when gathered together.  Even if your church, congregation or house of worship is not formally affiliated with JOSHUA, we would love for you to join us in prayer.
