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
So they may not come.
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?
