Speak up for the poor and needy

Speak for those who for themselves cannot speak,
And for those destitute and weak.
Speak that their rights and dignity these receive,
So that they no longer due to evil, grieve.

Speak up for the poor and needy,
And rescue them from the proud and greedy.
Speak for them without any fear and delay,
So that their freedom doesn’t go away.

Speak for them because do so is just,
And above all in God you trust.
Speak to the Lord prayer as well,
So that valiantly in the land you dwell.

 

(Inspired by Proverbs 31:8-9)

Psalm 113 – Who Is like the Lord Our God?

113 Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
    praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord
    from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised!

The Lord is high above all nations,
    and his glory above the heavens!
Who is like the Lord our God,
    who is seated on high,
who looks far down
    on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
    making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!

Reflection:

Praise the name of the Lord God. Everyone who works for God be encouraged to praise his Holy name.

Don’t praise Him only now but instead praise him now and forever.

From your time of getting up to the time of resting praise the Lord.

God is not like anything common. For he is exalted above all nations and the glory of heaven. No one can compare to our Lord God who created the heavens and the earth.

Merciful is the Lord for he uplifts the poor and needy. He places them with the princes of his people.

Bountiful are the Lord God’s blessings. He lifts up the barren woman in her affliction so that she receives children bringing much joy to her.

Praise God because he is worthy to be praised!
