You love righteousness and hate wickedness.

Something to read

Your throne O God endures forever and ever. Your royal sceptre is a sceptre of equity; you love righteousness and hate wickedness.

Psalms 45: 6-7

Something to think about

We believe in life before death: a world where everyone, in every community, has fullness of life. 

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together we have the power to transform lives.

Our faith in a God of equity and righteousness inspires our commitment to stand together for dignity, equality and justice.

Christian Aid connects us with communities where change is happening, building new relationships based on equity and righteousness. They have programmes in 37 countries, working with 475 local, national and international partners.

Something to pray

A stream of bubbles light on the breeze,
A flick of a blackbird’s tail,
A red poppy pushing through a crack in the pavement
Help me see with glad eyes Lord,
That I may seek out signs of joy in your world.
And bring such joyfulness to those who live in sorrow.
