Today, join in a prayer from the September 13 reading of “Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals:”

“Lord, help us see that prison takes many forms in all nations, from the steel bars of injustice and un-forgiveness to the open fields of consumerism and spirit-killing entertainment. Equip us by your Spirit’s power to free one another from the various prisons in which we find ourselves. Amen.”
