Heavenly Father,whose Son Jesus Christ came to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted, and to set free those who are oppressed:
give grace to the leaders of all the nations, that, being so hungry for justice for your poorest people,and fired with passion for their raising up,
they may be renewed in their determination to fulfil the promises they have made to them;
that the chains of hunger, disease and inequality may be broken;
and that all humanity may know life in all its fullness;
through him who came that we might have the same, Jesus Christ our Lord.
