The Spirit of the LORD will give him wisdom
and the knowledge and skill to rule his people.
He will know the LORD’s will and honour him,
and find pleasure in obeying him.
He will not judge by appearance or hearsay;
he will judge the poor fairly
and defend the rights of the helpless. Isaiah 11: 2-4a
Lord, we pray for all in positions of authority here and in every other land: may they strive for peace and justice, truth and honesty, wholeness and fullness of life for everyone. We pray for those who desperately long for peace and justice
who live with fear, poverty or abuse. We pray for ourselves that we will strive as best we can to make it the kind of world you want it to be
