Father you are everywhere present.
Unlimited in space and time.
You are Beer-Lahai-Roi - the God who sees me.
You are Ishmael – the God who hears me.
Even in the midst of our dysfunction and sin you are present.
You see all that happens and you will not be thwarted.
Though injustice prevails you will not allow it to conquer.
May that be an encouragement to me in the midst of pain and a warning to me in the midst of sin.
May we listen as you do to the Hagar’s of the world.
May we see as you do the weeping, abused and abandoned.
May we be a people that live godly in the midst of injustice
