Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications!
Israel is accused by the Lord of oppressing the poor, crushing the needy. God tried to get their attention, but nothing seemed to distract them. The Lord laments over the future of Israel and entreats them to change their ways, that showing up for fancy worship services won't suffice.
The Lord says to them, "Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream."
We can look to the Lord for support and forgiveness, for love and redemption.
One given to anger stirs up strife,
and the hothead causes much transgression.
Prayer for Today: Pray Psalm 130.
