Father God of compassion and justice let your rain of mercy and grace fall on the just and the unjust, the worthy and the unworthy. Expand and deepen our hearts so that we can love like You love, forgive like You forgive and care like You care for those among us who have caused BLACKS some of the greatest pain in wrongfully accusing us of murder because of the color of our skin, because our lives are not valued and our lives does not seem to matter. As a result of those wrongful accusations, many are faced with the death penalty, are lied upon, treated incorrectly and the day of justice seems far and hopeless. God of mercy, we cry out for mercy and grace for those who are impacted right now. On one hand, as hearts celebrate our freedom today on the other hand we cannot help but to remember those of us who are still not experiencing and living in that freedom because of various reasons of inequality, injustice hate and lies.
Upon the land of the great America, there is a dreadful, horrific and horrible cry for vengeance because of deep seated hatred as death row is being filled with wrongful Black inmates waiting to be killed in the names of racial systemic judicial injustice, and white supremacist who have hardened their hearts against what is right and honorable for black lives. Our Father, our brothers and sisters, who are at the mercy of this system, please remember them today as they suffer the threats of wrongful execution at the hands of the state. I pray that their cases will be reopened swiftly and a FAIR hearing trial will be SET with sufficient evidences to be presented in these cases for a prompt release of the innocent. Father God place this BURDEN in the hearts of attorneys and attorney generals as we are in the year of redemption. May there be an unrest for sudden action for those BLACKS on death row. May you please help us Lord, as we pray.
Show us strategic ways we can reach out to victims of violence and the wrongfully accused so that our enduring love may help with healing. Holy Spirit of God, we no long have a clear definition of what justice for BLACKS should look like but you know Oh God as we pray for Godly equity please grant us this request. Strengthen us in this struggle for justice and help us write a new meaning for all people, blacks, white, yellow and brown to agree upon. So much hurting is happening and today we ask for “Just Mercy”. Help us to work tirelessly to renew our country in its very heart, its very fibre, and its very veins so that injustice and the mistreatment of blacks will come to an abrupt end very soon. I pray this in the Name of Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
