Prayer: A New Order

Here’s a prayer inspired by John 18:37.  It comes from the Christian Aid website.

Prayer of Petition: We Seek a New Order
(inspired by John 18:37)

Pilate asked him, "So you are a king?"
Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king.
For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.
Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." (John 18:37) 

Loving God of power and justice and peace, 
In our broken world 
We seek a new order 
Where there is courage to speak truth to power 
We seek a new order 
Where there is mutual support in church and community
We seek a new order 
Where there is abundant time for healing 
We seek a new order 
Where there is peace and freedom for all
