A Collect for Justice

God of justice, who weighs the thoughts and hearts of all people, do not tarry long in bringing justice, and grant us patience and determination to come before your throne day and night with our cries, that those who care nothing for your ways might be made wise and those who suffer would be lifted up and granted release, through Jesus Christ our Lord who intercedes for us to you through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them?’ – Luke 18:7
