Prayer and Reflection
Friday October 6, 2006
Welcome! We hope you will enjoy using these reflections with us!
Apologies for the longer than expected break during September.
This week's reflection is a song that was shared at the recent Micah Network Global Consultation. The soundtrack is available as a 3 MB file, please email Regine if you would like to receive it.
'Oh Lord the poor cry out for justice
One things for sure heaven hears their cry.'
Please continue to reflect on this theme by reading Luke 18:1-8.
Then the Master said, "Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won't step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won't he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?"
(The Message Luke 18:6-8)

Meditate on the Statistics
As you spend time in prayer and reflection, you may like to take a moment to silently understand with your heart the focus statistic we will include each week (see below). We are hoping that you will find this series of statistics a useful reference in preparing presentations.
Goal 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability
Target 10: Halve, by 2015, the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water
'Every day, diarrhoeal diseases from easily preventable causes claim the lives of approximately 5 000 people, most of them young children.'
