Arise 219

Arise, cry aloud in the night at the beginning of the night watches; pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord; lift up your hands to him
for the life of your little ones who are faint because of hunger at the head of every street.
– Lamentations 2:19 (NASB)

A collaboration of urban youth workers, hosted by The Salvation Army, The John Perkins Center at SPU, World Vision, Scripture Union, and Union Gospel Mission.
