The poor

He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given. Proverbs 19:17


The Addicted

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me, to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound . . . Isaiah 61:1

  • Celebrate Recovery




 

 

The Prisoner

36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ Matthew 25:36,40


The Vulnerable

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9
