JM Prayer Focus: Malala Yousafzai

Nepal school girls

As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012, but survived and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Let us pray for all the people who work tirelessly for peace and justice.

Prayer for Justice

Grant us, Lord God, a vision of your world as your love would have it:
a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Final words of wisdom:

“Praying does not mean listening to yourself speak; praying means calming down and being still and waiting until you hear God.” (Søren Kierkegaard)
