As Jesus defended us in our weakness, we stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves (the unborn, children, etc.)

Scripture: Proverbs 31:1-9

ESV Text: Proverbs 31:1-9


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 31

     1 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. 2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows? 3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. 4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: 5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. 6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. 7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. 8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 434:
O God of Jacob, by Whose Hand

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. O God of Jacob, by whose hand 
Thy people still are fed; 
Who through this weary pilgrimage 
Hast all our fathers led, 

2. Our vows, our prayers, we now present 
Before Thy throne of grace; 
God of our fathers, be the God 
Of their succeeding race. 

3. Through each perplexing path of life 
Our wandering footsteps guide; 
Give us each day our daily bread 
And raiment fit provide. 

4. Oh, spread Thy covering wings around 
Till all our wanderings cease 
And at our Father’s loved abode 
Our souls arrive in peace. 

5. Now with the humble voice of prayer 
Thy mercy we implore; 
Then with a grateful voice of praise 
Thy goodness we’ll adore.
