He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Hillsong- Social Justice and Worship

Lord, I am naturally selfish. Please forgive me for not choosing to die to myself.. I pray that believers everywhere would experience your love to the point that we all are loving others in the same way you have loved us. Help us to not forget about the poor, the fatherless, or the orphans. Please cause our ears to hear the commands to love justice, show mercy and walk humbly with you

But you, O God, do see trouble and grief;
you consider it to take it in hand.
The victim commits himself to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless... The LORD is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land. You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more.
-Psalm 10 :14, 16, 17-18
