“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9 NIV
As Christians, we are called to advocate on behalf of the poor and needy, but it is not something we have to face on our own. God is with us in this work, and we can work together as the Body of Christ to do his work here on earth.
Today, join us as we pray for one another, asking that God would guide us, strengthen us, and be our voice as we raise our voices on behalf of God’s children in need.
Lord, thank you for giving us the opportunity to join you in your kingdom work, serving your children who are in need of basic things like food, water, education, and livelihoods. Give me and others the courage to pursue your calling and give us the words we need to speak your truth. Amen.
