Prayer of Faith

O Faith, where would you be

if not for the world’s labor

with which I also groan

for that creation be reborn

is my prayer

 

O Faith, where would you be

if not for the victims of injustice

I am helpless to defend

for that they be vindicated

is my prayer

 

O Faith, where would you be

if not for others’ pain

which I have caused

for that they be healed

is my prayer

 

O Faith, where would you be

if not for the children

under my care

for that they grow in wisdom and favor

is my prayer

 

O Faith, where would you be

if not for the promise of Love

from whom I am estranged

for that we would be united

is my prayer
