A Collect of Rescue from Oppression

Shield of the weak, who cares for those who cannot save themselves, rescue us from those who oppress, from those who bind and whip and enslave us for their own pleasures, that we would sing your praises and be free to bless as you have blessed us, grateful for you power wielded on our behalf, through Jesus Christ our Lord, whose kingdom shall stand forever by you with the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.’ – Isaiah 9:4
