Hearer of All, we pray that you will watch over and protect those who are suffering around the world as a result of economic inequality.

Report: Elites and citizens agree that economic inequality is a top priority, according to an article on PewRearch.org. A new report released by the World Economic Forum ranks rising inequality as the top trend facing the globe in 2015. Credit Suisse says people with a net worth of more than $1 million represent just 0.7 % of the global population, but they have 41% of the world's wealth. Meanwhile, those with a net worth of less than $10,000 represent 69% of the population, but just 3% of global wealth. Experts have concluded that inequality is linked to poverty, environmental degradation, unemployment, and political instability.

Hope for the World, give us the compassion, generosity, and determination to find ways to address the problems of caused by economic inequality so that we might enjoy the many blessings of life as one global family.
