Psalm 82:1-4

God has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
Give justice to the weak and the orphan;
maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”


In the same way that young children turn to their heroes and the Psalmist cried out for justice, we pray today that you would protect those who are often oppressed. We pray at this time for the people of Cuba. We work to feed the hungry in our own city. We long to do justice and love kindness as we walk with you. Keep us faithful in our tasks, we ask, as your obedient children. Amen
