Song for Sunday: Beauty for Brokenness

I have used this prayer for shalom or wholeness as a Song for Sunday before, but we sang it in church today and it grabbed my attention. God has been challenging me to remember, even identify with, the poor. This time around it is these lyrics that caught me:

Shelter for fragile lives 
Cures for their ills 
Work for the craftsman
Trade for their skills 
Land for the dispossessed
Rights for the weakVoices to plead the cause
Of those who can't speak

                                                          Graham Kendrick, author,  talking about this song. 

And a link to the song itself: 

What has God been calling your attention to lately?
How are you called to help the poor?
