When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:36
Four-hundred and one children and 133 women have been removed from a polygamist compound in West Texas, amid accusations of child abuse. Thank God it was peaceful and not a repeat of what happened years ago in Waco. Tonight the news reporters are saying that this is the biggest child protective services intervention in the history of Texas. One person mentioned that there probably wouldn't be enough foster homes for all the children.

I am heartbroken for these women and children. Oh Jesus, use your people to reach out to them and care for them. Fight on their behalf and be their Advocate. Protect them from the crouching lion who wants to steal, kill, and destroy even more than he already has. Keep anyone with evil motives far from them. Deliver them from bondage and from delusions. I pray for restoration, wholeness, hope, redemption, and salvation. Draw them unto Yourself and help them trust You. I praise You because you are good, you are just, and you never take your eyes off the oppressed.
