A prayer

For those facing exploitation

O God,

Gracious God,

From your abundance all gifts and skills are bestowed,

Making us participants in your work of creation.

By the word of your Son,

Confront our greed,

Challenge us when we treat people as means of profit,

Or discriminate unjustly against our fellow human beings.

Raise us up to new life in your service

That in all our works

Begun, continued and ended in you

We may glorify your holy name.

Through Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord,

Amen.
