Pregnant Prayer – Psalm 109

Highest Power, Greatest Love,
we've lost our voice, run out of words.
Who will stand up for the earth, for the poor?
Jesus, You know how we've tried
but corporate hawks and vultures
strip us of all privilege.

Hearts buried at Wounded Knee 
rise up today at Standing Rock.
Good God, halt the exploiters;
show them their expiration dates.
May their oily deals boomerang,
spike pressures, clog arteries,
cause their own strokes and heart attacks
while surviving tribes honor You,
Great Spirit of Living Waters.
