Where the voiceless and the powerless

are ignored or exploited

by the powerful and the connected

we pray for a new vision of power.

 

Where the weak and the vulnerable

are taken advantage of

by the strong and the violent

we pray for a new vision of power.

 

Where the uncertain and the seeking

are judged

by the religious and the sure,

we pray for a new vision of power.

 

Where ever power is used as a weapon,

protected as a limited resource,

or employed for self-aggrandisement,

we pray, Jesus, for a new vision of power,

and for the courage to share it

wherever we may.
