We invite all people—including prisoners, victims, families, law enforcement personnel, those in the justice system, and all those touched by the violence of crime—to join in the Prayer Campaign for Justice and Mercy. Simply say the prayer below each day, asking the God of Justice and Mercy to touch your heart and the hearts of all those touched by crime.

A Daily Prayer for Justice and Mercy

Jesus, united with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
give us your compassion for those in prison.

Mend in mercy the broken in mind and memory.
Soften the hard of heart, the captives of anger.
Free the innocent; parole the trustworthy.
Awaken the repentance that restores hope.
May prisoners families persevere in their love.

Jesus, heal the victims of crime. They live with the scars.
Lift to eternal peace those who die.
Grant victims families the forgiveness that heals.

Give wisdom to lawmakers and to those who judge.
Instill prudence and patience in those who guard.
Make those in prison ministry bearers of your light,
for all of us are in need of your mercy!

Amen.
