FACES OF THE SUFFERING

Verse
 
Again I saw all the oppressions that are practiced
under the sun. Look, the tears of the oppressed—
with no one to comfort them! On the side of their
oppressors there was power—with no one to
comfort them. And I thought the dead, who have
already died, more fortunate than the living, who
are still alive; but better than both is the one who
has not yet been, and has not seen the evil deeds
that are done under the sun.
(Ecclesiastes 4:1-3)
 
Voice
 
How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange
roof, thinking of home.
(William Faulkner)
 
Prayer
 
Lord, help us to see the face of God in the faces
of all who suffer. May it move us to act. Amen.
 
(Verse & Voice from Sojourners. sojo.net)
