Dear God,

Have pity on the poor and downtrodden;
Protect the innocents from death and strife;
Heed to the cries of the unborn babies;
Shelter the orphans, destitute, widows.

Forgive the repentant sinners fully;
Shield the righteous from snares of the wicked;
Give justice to those pleading at your cross;
Invigorate the weak and aged souls.

Give refuge to those oppressed by aliens;
Allow the pro-life to follow your code;
Prevent atrocities against upright;
Remove the tyrant kings and leaders fast.

Lessen the corruption that is widespread;
Punish the evil-doers and killers;
Save the honest folk from those demonized;
Mitigate the sufferings of your beloved.

Turn the deserts into verdure gardens;
Quench the thirsty, feed the hungry people;
Lessen the pain of those diseased and sick;
Console the bereaved and the elderly!
