Read Psalm 123
123:1 To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
123:2 As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until he has mercy upon us.
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt.
123:4 Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.
There is a world of people crying out against injustice "Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud."
Can you identify with the anger of those who pray this prayer?
Lord we beg for your mercy and ask for your justice.
Help us to live in the light of your justice and in the spirit of your mercy.
