Our Father, You are wise, and just, and merciful. You are gracious toward all human beings in Your relationship with us. May those of us who have been trained and equipped to practice law be wise, just, and merciful in our interactions with others. Whether we are advisors, advocates, or adjudicators, may we be helpers. Encourage and enable us also to be gracious toward all.
Father, for those of us who are Christians, may our service for others and for the culture in which we live also provide a harvest taste of the fruit of Your presence in us―love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control―that You would be known through us, and glorified.
Father, we are mindful of the considerable number of lawyers positioned to serve their neighbours as politicians. We pray that each, along with advisors, advocates, and adjudicators, would contribute to all of us being able to live quiet and peaceful lives.
Father, may each lawyer and each judge share in the knowledge of Your truth, experience the joy of Your salvation, and daily live and serve with sensitivity to Holy Spirit’s counsel and direction.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
