Scripture for the day is Proverbs 31:8-9

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus, you are my advocate (1 John 2:1). You speak for me before the throne of God to which, otherwise, I would have no access. Now, Lord, show me how I can be an advocate for the poor and marginalized. Give me the wisdom to know how to help them get justice. Amen.
