Prayers for Human Rights Day

Prayer for Justice and Peace.

Righteous Father, your Son will come to be our judge: break down the barriers that divide us and disperse our suspicions and hatred, that we may practice justice with mercy and live together in your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for those who have authority, influence or power.

Almighty Father, you have given all authority to your beloved Son: govern the hearts and minds, of all who have influence and power and bring the peoples of the earth, divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin, to the justice and peace of his kingdom; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
