“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19.

I hear the echoes of your silenced
screams piercing through my mind.
Screams from the forgotten,
abused, and misused.
for hearts and bodies tattered, worn,
wounds left open, and exposed.
The cries of your heart,
that you feel no one else seems
reach high into the heavens.
God sees and understands.
The tears that flow like waterfalls,
that you think no one seems to see,
God sees them.
He hears them.
I must respond on bended knee.
On bended knee before my Father
there is a plea for your Deliverer to
knowing only He can move the vast
mountains of oppression,
that have remained for way too long.
It is here,
I feel the earth shake,
in an outcry,
for your freedom,
to live a life free of being someone’s
I see a light,
pierce through the darkness,
illuminating your tear stained face.
Your face is not forgotten,
God knows your name.
You are the King’s treasure,
and He longs to give you His very best.
You are not someone to be overlooked,
or clothed in shame.
You are a precious one,
one that God adores.
God hears the wailing of your heart,
and He is calling for the world to
We do not lose hope for justice,
for our help comes from above.
He is breaking our hearts,
with the pain that breaks yours.
No longer are your screams to be
or your suffering ignored.
We cannot live your nightmares
or even heal your wounds,
but we can keep shouting from the
rooftops for deliverance to come.
We can fight for your freedom.
Your freedom is my passion,
for the world to see your plight.
Prayers will surround you,
until all the injustices are made right.
More than prayer,
there is rallying for you!
We cannot do everything,
but we can do something.
It starts here,
with the world hearing your silenced
There are so many hurting people in the world. So many children and women, who are being abused, or held against their will. My heart aches for every hurting person in the world. While I cannot carry each person’s individual burden, I can pray for the oppressed. I cannot forget those held captive and so my knee bends to pray. So please join me in praying for our friends held captive around the world. God loves them as much as He loves us.
