Prayer for Those in Poverty


God of Justice, open our eyes
to see you in the face of those in poverty.
Open our ears to hear you
in the cries of those exploited.
Open our mouths to defend you
in the public squares as well as in private deeds.
Remind us that what we do to the least ones, we do to you.

(From Being Neighbor: The Catechism and Social Justice, USCCB, April 1998)
