A South African prayer for the new UK government…..

O God, open our eyes

that we may see the needs of others;

open our ears

that we may hear their cries;

open our hearts

that they need not be without compassion.

Let us not be afraid to defend the weak

because of the anger of the strong;

nor afraid to defend the poor

because of the anger of the rich.

Show us where love and hope and faith are needed,

and use us to bring them to these places.

Open our eyes and ears

that we may daily do some work of peace for you.

(Alan Paton)
