Prayer to End Poverty
May God bless us with discomfort
       at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships,
       so that we may live deep within our hearts.
May God bless us with anger
       at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
       so that we may work for economic justice for all people.
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer
       from pain, hunger, homelessness and rejection,
       so that we may reach out our hand to comfort them
       and to turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless us with enough foolishness
       to believe that we can make a difference in the world
       so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
