Inspiration for the Day, December 27, 2012: 

Bring justice to the peoples, O Beloved, and your mercy to all generations!
May the people be known for mercy, rendering justice to the poor!
Let their spirits soar as the eagle, let joy abide in every heart!
May we heed the cry of the poor - the young and the old, helping to free all those in need, awakening the souls of oppression!
May every heart open to your Love from sea to sea, from the Rivers of Life out to the universe!
May fears that paralyze the people rise up from the depths into Your Light!
For you heed the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no friend.
You have compassion on the weak, the downtrodden, giving them strength and hope.
From injustice and oppression, You redeem their life; and precious they are in your Heart.
Come, let us offer our praise and prayers to the Beloved One who dwells in our hearts!

- adapted from Psalm 72 by Nan C. Merrill
