Psalm 10: Perfect Prayer
I'm especially disturbed by the increase in human trafficking in our world. It's a perverse evil to use human lives without regard for God or man (Psalm 10:6,11).
My heart breaks for the victims, but I often don't know how to pray.
Psalm 10 is a perfect prayer for human trafficking victims or victims of any oppression.
Verse 15 asks God to punish those whose sins are "underground"-- concealed from the public, sins against the fatherless and oppressed (v.18).
God doesn't stop all oppression, but He promises the most severe punishment for those who harm children (Mark 9:42) and calls all of us to speak up for those who cannot defend themselves (Proverbs 31:8).
One way we can do our part is to pray. Why not pray through Psalm 10:12-15 today (or every day) and speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.
