Advent, Second Week, Friday

I am the Lord, your God, Who grasp your right hand; It is I who say to you, "Fear not, I will help you". The afflicted and needy seek water in vain, their tongues are parched with thirst. I, the Lord, will answer them; I, their God, will not forsake them. Isaiah 41, 13-20 Lord God, help me, help all of us human beings; You will not forsake any of us; You will answer us, every one of us.
