“…to bring good news to the poor…”
Luke 4: 18-19
Grant us courage today to raise our voices on behalf of those who have no other voice but ours. Help us to break down the walls of exclusion that separate us; Help us to reach beyond our comfort zones to bring water to desert places; take hope to those who have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Help us to be advocates for those who have little, less or none of the things we take for granted: fresh water, food and a safe place to live.
Forgive us when we have wasted precious resources, squandered provisions or opportunities to be a blessing to someone else. Thank you for another day and another chance to lift every voice and sing. In Jesus Name, Amen.
