A Prayer for God’s Blessing

Some people believe when there in injustice, it is all right to protest by looting, and hurting others. We see this when African Americans believe that there is injustice. This was not always the case. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks believed in a nonviolent protest. Many believe that violence against the opposition is approved by God, and therefore will succeed in their efforts to make changes. But protests, especially violent ones do not usually succeed. It is a rare occurrence when a wall comes down. An eye for an eye may not be a viable remedy for injustice. We can oppose and speak out against injustice, but we cannot remedy by our own actions the injustices that are inflicted on us.

How do we then address the injustices directed at us, or to others? We ask God to help us. How does God help us? We do not expect God to strike our enemies by a lightening strike, or drown them by a torrid flood. We ask God to help them sweep evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from their minds. Imagine asking God to help our enemies? But this is how we can eliminate injustice. A prayer for God’s blessing is what will make the world better.
