This beautiful interfaith, inclusive prayer by James Hug, SJ asks for God's help in freeing ourselves from the "idolatry of wealth" that separates us while weaving us together in global solidarity. The prayer reads: 

Awesome God of cosmic time-space,
Intimate God, in each heart,
Energizing, Organizing God, weaving global solidarity.

Y’hw’h, Allah, Brahman, 
Abba, Father-Mother,
we thank you for threading us together 
into one stunning planetary web of life.

Awesome, Intimate, Unifying God,
forgive us for letting glimpses of your immensity
swell our arrogance,
dividing us from our sisters and brothers
in whom you dwell
through other images, experiences, cultures, revelations,
longing for the fullness
that only our oneness can reveal.

Break us free – as gently as you can…
but as forcefully as we demand –
from the idolatry of wealth, “free markets”,
individualism, competition, consumption
that blind us to the rich complexity of your presence,
that reduce our sisters and brothers – and us –
to consumers/producers/competitors/markets.

Break the enduring chains of slavery and colonialism
that set us on such vastly diverging paths of wealth and poverty.
Turn those paths toward each other into your path to fullness-in-unity.

Purge us of whatever blinds us to your crucifixion-by-poverty
in billions of sisters and brothers,
whatever allows us to starve your revealing love
in 800 million of our sisters and brothers,
whatever allows us to plunder our planet,
uncaring of our children’s children,
careless of the sacredness it displays.

Y’hw’h, Allah, Brahman, 
Abba, Father-Mother,
alert us to your urgent struggle to unite us –
each in our uniqueness,
all in our diversity.

Fill us with as much awe and joy
at your presence in our sisters and brothers,
with as much energy and passion
to work with you as we can bear – 
that we all may be one in you
and you may be glorified in us.

Amen! Alleluia!
