Let us pray for urban safety, peace and justice, all the way down the line, all the way up the line.
From the beginnings of life to death and beyond.
From individuals to communities to cities and beyond.
May what cities do become a foundation from which can rise safety, peace and justice throughout the world, in all aspects: from basic physical needs, to practical economic, needs to deeper emotional and spiritual needs.
Starting with individual, community and social justice, to reduce the need for intervention at the law enforcement, judicial and other governmental levels.
May we all be safe, at peace, and dispensers as well as receivers of justice.
