House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to fellow Democratic members of the House of Representatives on Sunday that simply included the text of what she called “A Responsive Prayer for Justice.”

“Pray for those who are hungry,” the prayer starts.

“Pray harder for those who will not feed them,” it says.

“Pray for those who struggle each week to pay their bills,” says the prayer. “Pray harder for the wealthy who do not care.”
