Pray of the Amazon prophet

“Please see if missionary people do not have reasons to complain and protest against so much inequity, against that human flesh trade and the women and children trafficking.”

“Hear this, you who trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land” (Amos 8, 4)

Lord of justice
Friend of poor people, of women
And children.
I beg you for your children from
The Amazon
Who are trampled and exploited,
Hurt in their dignity
Made slaves,
Force to work in the rubber plantations
Their families disbanded,
Their children stolen,
Their women prostituted.
My soul is deeply sad
When contemplating
Humiliations and insults
They face day after day.
Their cry goes to you
God of the poor.
Make justice for my brothers
Protect them,
Defend them
Defeat their oppressors,
Confuse those who cheat
And negotiate with native people,
To those who profit with
Human suffering.
Give me the bravery of the prophets,
To denounce these crimes,
The audacity of Montecinos and
Bartolome de las Casas
To protest and defend life
Of each of the natives.
You my strength and rest.
