Day 1 of 40
8 Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless.
9 Speak for them and be a righteous judge. Protect the rights of the poor and needy.
Many people in the world, especially women and children, are not able to speak for or protect themselves. They need someone to help them. Ask God how you might help defend them. Ask him how you can help relieve their poverty and meet their needs.
