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.
Christians in every era are called to defend the rights of the weak, speak up for those who are alienated, and protect the life of those who are vulnerable.
This comprehensive call is the great reminder that the blessings, rights, wealth, and power we may have is not ours alone; it is a gift from God to be used to bless those who have no power to speak, to defend, or to protect themselves.
Heavenly Father, give me the passion to stand up for those in need. Help me to be a liberating force in the time and the circle of influence in which I live. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
