Prayers for Justice: 16 Powerful Uplifting

Christians are familiar with the justice system. There may be occasions in our earthly existence when we are forced into court or go to court on our own to resolve a dispute with another person. You may experience this, but don’t be afraid.

The Lord requires us to abide by the rules of our country as Christians. He wants us to be kind and submissive rather than rebellious. With a clear conscience and sincere, humble hearts, we should enter the courtroom.

The Lord has vowed to testify against those who oppress others and pervert the course of justice to suit themselves. Through influencing others on earth, some people have managed to rise to positions of authority.

Even though some of these individuals lack Jethro’s attributes, they nonetheless have the authority to judge God’s people. Do not be afraid when you come up against these leaders who were not selected by God; the Lord will be with you in judgment.

He will testify quickly in your behalf against those who try to use the legal system to their advantage and oppress the less fortunate.
