Prayer for Social Justice

Almighty God, who hast created man in Thine own image; grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil, and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice among men and nations, to the glory of Thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

-From the Book of Common Prayer, “Prayers and Thanksgivings”

The Greek inscription at the center of the Anglican compass is from John 8.32, “the truth will make you free.”
