O Keeper of Promises, Come
Luke 1:54-55 God has helped God’s servant Israel, . . . according to the promise God made to our ancestors . . .
O Keeper of Promises, Come~
You promise that the wrong shall fail,
the right prevail,
with peace on earth and good will toward all.
Make us lovers of your good will and justice.
Move the intentions of our hearts
from revenge to rehabilitation,
from punishment to restoration,
from judgment to understanding,
from our human laws to your law of love.
Open us to your vision of justice:
a world where all are welcome,
where all are treated with respect and love,
where all have the opportunity
to create meaningful lives.
Compel us to work joyfully
for your peace and justice in this world.
