Prayer list. . .

Here's my first prayer list for the first Sunday of 2014:
  • Minimum wage adjustment so that people who work can live above poverty line
  • Comprehensive immigration reform so that thousands of my neighbors can receive documentation needed to remain in the US "legally"
  • Housing for thousands of homeless persons living on Dallas streets on this cold, cold morning
  • Aggressive/progressive city policy to incent developers to build needed permanent supportive housing units in our city
  • The children who will go back to school tomorrow--that their  educational experience would be adequate for their coming lives
  • Churches in Dallas to "connect the dots" between the Christian message and God's love for the world and the poor
  • Strength to live life with less talk and more action
  • Justice in the US economy and in the Dallas expression of same
  • Those left out, left behind and kicked to the side to know their real status in the heart of God
  • Mercy, Lord, mercy

Amen, Larry!. Especially your prayer that "churches in Dallas to 'connect the dots' between the Christian message and God's love for the world and the poor. Friends of Justice has created a curriculum, Breaking the Silence, that is designed to do precisely that.
