Binding up the brokenhearted
Psalm 68:6 NLT
God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
Isaiah 58:6 SMG
“This is the kind of fast day I’m after: to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace, free the oppressed, cancel debts.”
Proverbs 24:11 NLT
Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die. Don’t try to avoid responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it. For God knows all hearts, and he sees you. He keeps watch over your soul, and he knows you knew! And he will judge all people according to what they have done.
James 2:8 NLT
Yes indeed, it is good when you truly obey our Lord’s royal command found in the Scriptures: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
I would like to support ministries that touch the heart of God as described in the passages above; bringing hope and rescue to those who are enslaved or unjustly imprisoned, sentenced to death, trapped and hurting.
