Come calm our troubled hearts and minds with your eternal peace and help us to remember that your hand is upon us.

Short prayer for justice in court

Dear Father,

Our hearts cry out for justice, for fairness, for equality, for restoration. Come, come into this courtroom with us. Come Holy Spirit presence yourself amongst us and within us as we seek to be understood. Reveal the truth, throw light on the darkest places to bring justice. Protect us from the lies of the enemy that seek to pull us down and guard our hearts from anything that creates fear in our lives.

Lord, we stand on holy ground. Thank you that we are adopted into your family. Thank you that no matter what happens we are secure and safe within your love and grace. So we go boldly into this court hearing knowing you are with us, and will lead us through this time with your hand in ours.

A Psalm for meditation

Psalm 10:17-18

You listen to the longings
of those who suffer.
You offer them hope,
and you pay attention
to their cries for help.
You defend orphans
and everyone else in need,
so that no one on earth
can terrify others again.
