Prayer makes just the one who prays for Justice

Morning: Psalm 50; Deut 16:18-20;17:14-20; 2 Corinthians 8:1-16
Evening: Psalm 8, 84; Luke 18:1-8
Paul urges Christians to act generously in the cause of human justice and fairness. Jesus says God will grant justice to those who pray for it. This happens in surprising ways … Prayer is not just asking for whatever you want; prayer is aligning yourself with God’s desire for justice.  When you do, justice happens, through you. When you ask God for justice, God calls you to be generous. Then you are the one who makes the prayer come true … by your actions.  Prayer is no spectator sport … God changes the world by changing the one who prays.
