Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


Save me, O God,

from being a full participant in a society

grown fat and rich on the backs of others.

Take off my blinders so I may see

the injustice and poverty everywhere around me.

Help me understand the need

for a repentance that turns my heart

to a loving and just relationship with everyone.
