Lord, the wicked judge us guilty, though we are guilty of nothing but confessing Your name. In order to plausibly judge us guilty, they create new laws to make it so. Claiming to keep Church and State separate, in their idiotic efforts they coerce the State to coerce the Church to obey their new, ungodly laws. May the Church stand for You and not their iniquity. In human courts they judge us guilty before it is time to make a verdict; we never face fair trials. Deliver us, O Lord, from such iniquity. Let their injustices be their shame. May we continue to worship You freely.

Amen.
