He will have pity on the lowly and the poor; the lives of the needy He will save.  – Ps 72:13

Reflection.  The poor are usually those who are lowly, oppressed, and without power.  You may not be materially poor, but are you in need of God’s strength for any reason?  As soon as you tell Him about it, the Lord God is at your side.  Things will get better immediately.

Prayer.  Father, into Your hands I commend my spirit.
