May All Who Hold Political and Monetary Power Use It to Serve (Prayer)Prayer / Produced by partner of TOW
Lord, you have set us an example: you have shown us how we should treat one another. Yet in so many situations and places people relate to one another with greed, with grasping, with violence, with hatred, with violence and injustice. We pray for people throughout the world who are in positions of leadership and responsibility. May they know the way of servanthood. May all who hold political and monetary power use that power to serve with integrity those for whom they are responsible.
(c. Barbara A Scott ‘Shaping Prayer’, Methodist Publishing House 1996)
