Holy God, Proclaimer of Justice, are you awake?

Ordinary folks who simply worked their jobs,

Paid their bills, loved their children,

Come seeking help.

Their world has fallen apart

Through no fault of their own.

So they come.

Political leaders, who are charged with looking after us

Seem out of touch

Spend money on death, not life

Close their eyes to long term solutions

Seeking only votes

So they don’t come.

People with financial resources

Fear, fret, worry, fight,

Close their doors, their hearts

Protect, defend

So they may not come.

And yet….

People come with tears, fears,

They come with yearning, hoping,

They come with visions and nightmares.

They come looking for …. looking for…. looking for…..

Holy God, are you awake?
