Will You Continue to Pray?

A Closing Reflection on Human Trafficking Great movements of history – from early abolition to civil rights – have often been led by the Church and fueled by prayer. Prayer builds and illuminates the pathway. As we engage the work of justice through prayer, we join a global movement of intercessors, co-laborers and justice seekers spanning history to bring slavery and violent oppression to an end. In a world of slavery, human trafficking and other forms of violent... Read More

Joy in Persecution

“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10 The work of justice is not easy. As we intercede on behalf of victims of oppression, we will meet adversity. You may experience doubt and question whether praying is actually enough. There will be the voice of the accuser that says you should be spending your time more efficiently—the voice that taunts “God is not listening.” And perhaps there... Read More

Victory Through Peace

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9 Being a peacemaker is not a passive, quiet stance. In fact, the Scriptures describe peace through a very different perspective. Peace is likened to a river (Isaiah 66:12)—unstoppable, flowing, covering rocks and debris, shaping its own course. It is the God of peace who will soon crush the evil one under his feet (Romans 16:20). Peace is the part of the armor upon which we stand, the... Read More

Seeing God

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8 God dwells in the high and holy place, but also amongst the broken and lowly. We often think about wanting to “see God” according to our own place of need, but as we approach this Beatitude, we are reminded of the places beyond our own need—places where we may most deeply see God. As followers of Christ, we are called to become pure in heart like our Savior. God’s heart is for others;... Read More

Mercy for the Unmerciful

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy.” Matthew 5:7 One of the most difficult things to do as justice-seekers is to pray for the perpetrators of injustice, showing mercy to those who, in our human estimation, deserve no mercy. We are humbled by the words of Jesus in this Beatitude as we remember that he showed us mercy when we ourselves deserved none. And he has called us to do the same. Jesus went to the cross for the sins of all humanity. In one great... Read More
