Morning Prayer: Our City and Corruption


Politics and politicians have a bad reputation because so many have taken advantage of their political positions in order to benefit themselves. But corruption as a principality and power can have influence on any institution: academic institutions, corporations, law practices, non-profits—even the church. In New Orleans, corruption is such that the local FBI anti-corruption office has two squads; offices in cities five times as large don’t have that.

PRAYER: Father, we long for integrity in our own lives as we long for it in our public and private institutions. We pray that you would raise up brave men and women to oppose and root out corruption in our society. We pray that you would lead us not into the temptation to use our positions for our own benefit, but that you would instill in our society a deep desire to serve one another.
