Response: Christ in me, arise

From the hardness of anger and rage…

From the hardness of resentment and lack of hope…

From the hardness of devaluing all life and our potential…

From the hardness of cheating and lying…

 

From the hardness of not believing God will love us and change us…

From the hardness of our negative behaviors…

From the hardness of ignoring people surviving urban poverty…

From the hardness of judging people living outside…

 

From the hardness of labels and judgments on people…

From the hardness of a fearful heart and ill-will toward family…

From the hardness of jealousy and jumping to false conclusions…

From the hardness of envy and a lack of gratitude…

 

From the hardness of corruption among leaders and governments…

From the hardness of hostility among nations…

From the hardness of indifference to the suffering of others…

From the hardness of hatred of our neighbors…

 

From the hardness of violence and war…

From the hardness of busyness and lack of attention…

From the hardness of lack of concern for the elderly and the ill…

From the hardness of our inability to care for people with disabilities…

 

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…
