Scripture Reading for Apr 19, 2015
Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, “He won’t call me to account”?But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand.The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.Break the arm of the wicked man; call the evildoer to account for his wickedness that would not otherwise be found out. The Lord is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land.You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.
