Amidah - part 11 - Justice

After talking about Freedom, we talk about the other side of Freedom -- Justice.

Restore our judges as in former times, and our counsellors as of yore; remove from us sorrow and sighing, and reign over us, You alone, O L-rd, with kindness and compassion, with righteousness and justice. Blessed are You L-rd, King who loves righteousness and justice.

Depending on what is going on, I think of this blessing either as a social or personal meditation:

1. Social -- Praying for a system of justice that will protect the freedoms we have already prayed for.  
2. Personal -- Praying for a relationship with my parents which is free from worry and guilt.
