A Lament on economic disparity [Blog/Prayer]

Share this:

Why is life so hard?

Why are there such vast economic differences across this country, across this world?

I look around and see buildings being erected so quickly

in order to gain more and more riches.

Further down those same roads I find someone sleeping on the street.

Is there any justice, equality, and care for one another?

Will there be a time when economic suffering is no more?

What will it take, God, for your love to permeate this place we call the world,

this vessel we call a body, and the intricacies of our heart?

What must we do to enable your divine hand to move in and through us

so that we all may experience financial freedom?

What will it take God?

Why is this life so hard?
