Tearfund: Living Water Day 37

 

LIVING WATER: Voice for change

 

 

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. (Proverbs 31:8)

 

Justice is a theme that we see running through all of scripture God has a heart for the poor and for those who are mistreated and cannot be heard. Where can we be a voice for those who do not have a voice?

 

The riverbank communities in San Pedro Sula are illegal settlements so the government do not want to provide public services like schools, health centres or drinking water. The conditions are squalid and the residents get no state support due to their status as ‘unofficial’. But what other choices are there for the people of the riverbank community?

 

Angela and others in the community have received training in conflict resolution and guidance in setting up committees where they can be a voice for their community in talking to the local government about finding a safer place to live.

 

Prayer

Father we are so aware of the injustice all around us. Please help us to have the courage and see the opportunities to speak up against injustice. We pray for Angela and others in her community who are seeking a solution to their needs. May the authorities in San Pedro Sula be willing to work with them and may they find a way forward.

 

Please consider giving to our Lent Appeal <http://www.tearfund.org/Admin/Inpoints/Appeals/Lent/LentReflections?utm_source=Lent&utm_campaign=19d2e002ef-Lent%3A_6_April&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1fffc6e3b0-19d2e002ef-30175049> and help bring transformation to places like Honduras.
