God of justice and equality,
look with compassion upon those
whose land is unproductive,
whose homes are insanitary,
whose lives are under-privileged
and whose hopes are ever dashed by the greed of landlords who oppress them,
the harshness of a climate which defeats them
and the barrenness of a soil which daily mocks their labours.
May the skill of human knowledge
and the liberation of your gospel
bring productivity,
and hope
in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen.
