Relevant post!

Makes me think of a time as a child when I attempted to save for a greatly desired mini bike.  Though I had no idea at the time, I was part of a relatively poor family who had no money to flat out buy me the bike.  After weeks of only being able to gather pocket change from digging through car seats or scavenging around check out counters when going grocery shopping with my mom, I soon lost all hope of attaining the $600 needed for the dream bike.  I gave up.  What I needed was an opportunity to actually create valuable wealth.  Many people face a similar task, but with much more serious consequences from failure and an even more serious roadblock.  

My current landlord runs a Christian ministry in Southern Sudan.  The people farm there, with a plow and an AK47 strapped around their neck.  They lack a government that provides protection and restraint against those that would kill to steal their produce, therefore many of them lose all hope and stay trapped in poverty.

We are told:

Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor, But it is swept away by injustice.
-Proverbs 13:23 (NASB)

One significant way we can help the poor is to pray for the restoration of justice, not a justice defined by man, but true justice as defined by God.
