Arise, cry out in the night,
At the beginning of the watches;
Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord.
Lift your hands toward Him
For the life of your young children,
Who faint from hunger at the head of every street.
"For the life of your young children who faint from hunger at the head of every street..."
There are young people at every street corner who are desperate for Jesus and Truth and spiritual life. What are we doing to provide it?
Do we pass them by? Blame them for where they are? Shun them? Ignore the desperation on their faces?
Or do we take the time to stop and consider their needs? Even in the midst of their rebellion and pain.
Do we make it a point to speak to them? To offer them some glimmer of hope? Some word of encouragement? Some hint of a greater love than their mistakes or their parents' mistakes or society's mistakes?
It doesn't take but one moment to stop and let them know they are loved with an everlasting love.
Despite their odds.
