A Prayer from Vietnam
O We remember, O Lord,
those who suffer from any kind of discrimination,
your children, and our brothers and sisters,
who are humiliated and oppressed.
We pray for those who are denied fundamental human rights,
for those who are imprisoned,
and especially those who are tortured.
Our thoughts rest a few moments with them…
And we pray that your love and compassion may sustain them always.
(Vietnam, Week of Prayer for World Peace. WAGP, p. 203.)
