God of Justice, forgive me for turning a blind eye toward those who have been unjustly accused or imprisoned. Give me, and all people, wisdom and courage to champion Your justice in our community and in the world.
Protect those who are wrongly imprisoned today. Also, give courage to those who are working diligently to free the captives, and to those who are ministering to individuals in prison systems worldwide.
To explore what injustice looks like in our world, read Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. It is a powerful, convicting examination of the death penalty, mass incarceration, and juvenile imprisonment in the United States.
Stevenson is a renowned lawyer who has tried cases in the Supreme Court and across the Southern US.
