The Freedom of Slavery

Slavery to Christ is paradoxically, the way the oppressed are set free. Whatever chains bind us - addictions, poverty and emptiness – Christ breaks our bonds by his own poverty, death and resurrection.

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” Isaiah 58:6-7

Jesus Christ is the true liberator. To him we pray:

R Free your people, Lord.

For those who are trapped in homelessness, hunger, cold, thirst and nakedness, we pray: R

For those who are hated, marginalized and oppressed because of their own brokenness, we pray:

For those who are unjustly treated because of their race and color, we pray: R

For those liberators who bring release to the captive, lost and the lonely, we pray: R

“So if the Son has set your free, you are free indeed.” John 8:36
