Jeremiah 8:1–9:9; 2 Thessalonians 1
Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute. Proverbs 31:8
Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured. Hebrews 13:3
Jesus, you teach that love for you is expressed by loving the least of your brothers and sisters—our brothers and sisters. May we learn to love as you love, and give ourselves as you gave yourself for the life of the world. Amen.
