This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“For he will save the poor who cry out and the needy who have no one to help them” (Psalm 72:12).
Reflection: When God works among his people, he overcomes isolation, division, and abandonment. He is the God who gathers together, unites, and bonds. When there are needy people around, that problem is made worse when they “have no one to help them.” That’s where God comes in to make the difference, by inspiring people to do something.
Prayer: Lord, you do not want the cries of the defenseless to go unheeded. Help us to come to the aid of those who have no help and whose lives are endangered. Amen.
