Spiritual Warfare: 'Godly Folks Desire Justice for the Poor'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, July 3, 2022

Good people care about justice for the poor, but the wicked are not concerned.
— Proverbs 29:7 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I know You care about the poor. Jesus ministry was especially focused on the poor, and it also seemed like the poor were often more receptive to His message. Forgive me for my past lack of concern for the poor, Lord, and help me to see them from now on through Your eyes. I pray for justice for the poor. Help the poor to be treated fairly in our land and give the poor a heart that lovingly receives that justice. Let the golden rule become the order of the day; the normal procedure; the rule of thumb. Let love rule the land in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
