Bastille Day



Lord where injustice rules, where oppressors are too powerful to be opposed, where governments favour the wealthy and devalue thepoor, we long for regime change.




Where the hungry are kept hungry, where prisoners are denied a fair trial, when peaceful demonstrations are answered with violence, we longfor regime change.




In our lives, when forces beyond our control inflict pain upon us, steal our hope, and assassinate us with criticisms; when we do all these things to others because we have not acknowledged you as Lord; in our lives, we long for regime change.




In our church, when we are preoccupied with petty concerns,governed by trivia and distracted by that which is not you, we long for regimechange.  We long for your kingdomto come.
