COMING HOME PRAYER
Blessed Jesus, help us to remember that you were condemned as a criminal. May those in prison know your loving presence and thus have hope for their future. To those held unjustly, bring release. Forgive us and lead us in moving toward a criminal justice system that truly is just. Remember those who work in our jails and prisons; keep them humane and compassionate and save them from becoming brutal or callous. Be with all who serve those who are incarcerated. Help us to remember that what we do for those in prison, O Christ, we do for you. All this we ask for your mercy’s sake. Amen.
