Psalm 103:6 (NLT)
6 The LORD gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly.
This psalm of David gives praise to the Lord. Matthew Henry said of verse 6, �Truly God is good to all: He executes righteousness and judgment, not only for his own people, but for all that are oppressed; for even in common providence he is the patron of wronged innocency, and, one way or other, will plead the cause of those that are injured against their oppressors. It is his honour to humble the proud and help the helpless.
I read the following from a friend I went to high school with concerning an attack on her son. I took it from her Facebook page for others to read so you might pray for her and her son:
�HELP>>> My son Warner was assaulted in 5pts (University of S.C. Campus area) last Thursday April 5/6 around midnight. It required extensive surgery. It has changed his life and he had just qualified for nationals 4 Olympics! PLS PLS help me. Pics b4 or after surgery are too graphic 4 here. He left Beys and crossed the street to Harpers. He was headed to car parked on Green St at Group Therapy. Investigation moving tooooooo friggin slow. THIS is my son...HELP! heartbroken�
Can you hear the urgent plea of a mother who is looking for justice for her son? Can you hear the worry and concern of the opportunities that might be taken away from this young man? Do you see a broken heart pleading for our help?
Recently there has been a lot of news coverage about the Trayvon Martin case. Their family sought justice for their son and rightly so. Had it been my son I would have been sitting in the police station and prosecutors office until some action was taken. When your child is harassed, bullied, harmed, hurt, beaten or murdered justice is demanded. They lost a child and there needs to be an explanation, an investigation and a process of justice to determine the facts.
I read an article from comedian Jon Lovitz who spoke out against the bullying of a friend�s daughter. Lovitz posted a picture of their handiwork, saying, �Swastikas in sh** left on my friend�s front porch were done by three 14-year-old girls, driven to the house by one of the girl�s mother.� Lovitz says the bullied girl�s grandfather was a Holocaust survivor. How can a parent allow this action to take place??
Actor/Comedian D.L. Hughley recently wrote a news post as a letter to Trayvon Martin sayin, �Like your parents, and countless other Americans, I want justice for you and the life that you will never get to live.� We all want justice for Trayvon and we want it done correctly.
Let us pray God will provide justice for all our youth. Let us be united as one people under God to see these issues addressed. Let us work together as friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, as neighbors, family and as a community to put an end to what are senseless attacks against our youth. I ask prayer for my friend Tami and her son Warner. I ask prayer for Trayvon�s family and the girl and her family that was bullied. Let us pray for all the innocent who have been wronged.
Father God we ask your love, mercy and grace to be upon these families. Lord we pray you would take up for our youth and bring about justice. Lord please bring us together as one people seeking to do what is right. Allow us to be your hands, your feet, your eyes and your mouth working for justice. AMEN
