Day 17 : Church helping the migrant people in Malaysia

"In war,
the strong make slaves of the weak,
and in peace the rich make slaves of the poor.
We must work to live, and they give us such mean wages that we die.
We toil for them all day long,
and they heap up gold in their coffers,
and our children fade away before their time,
and the faces of those we love become hard and evil.
We tread out grapes, and another drinks the wine.
We sow the corn, and our own board is empty.
We have chains, though no eye beholds them;
and we are slaves, though men call us free."

The Weaver,
The Young King

In these 40 days of prayer and fasting, let us remember the downtrodden and do good. Let us see the poor and needy and show kindness and love.
