HE LIFTS US UP: “Father of the fatherless… Come down and rescue us.”

“Father of the fatherless… Come down and rescue us.”

These words from Jason Upton’s song were playing in my head for several days previously so I prayed for the Lord to bring more understanding to what He wanted me to know.  I realized that we need to look beyond what we normally see to try to see what God sees… Our view is much different through our Father’s eyes.

Walking into a crowded room,
observe and what do you see?
People talking in groups,
smiling and happy as can be.
Others with cast down stares,
looking so broken and lonely.

These hiding in corners,
with no friends in sight.
Alone and hurting,
none caring about their plight.
For these are the broken,
who try to hide in plain-sight.

And no one sees them,
or gives them a second thought.
Others busy with their lives,
their own joy they’ve sought.
Not aware of these broken people,
or battles that they’ve fought.

Then walking into a nursing home,
observe and what do you see?
Many downcast and broken,
feeling neglected and lonely.
Once independent and healthy,
as they raised their family.

Many of this older generation,
fought for us to be free.
They stood proud and strong,
as they defended this country.
But now, broken and alone,
feeling abandoned by even family.

Looking forward to visits,
by those that they love.
But feeling lonely and forsaken,
they then call to above.
For God hears their prayers,
and covers them with His Love.

These are just some examples,
of those who are so broken.
But God loves the broken-hearted,
and this is clearly spoken.
He reaches out to them all,
and is with them to the end.

For He is a Father…
to all the fatherless.
He is a Friend…
to all the friendless…
And He is the Healer…
in all our brokenness.
And this call goes out…
Lord, come down and rescue us!


“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.” (Psalm 68:5 NKJV)

Dear Lord, I pray for the rescue of the broken around the world. I pray for eyes to open and hearts to receive that You are the Father of the Fatherless and that You would put a new-found compassion in every heart. I pray that Your children will realize that You sent them here to overcome this world and return their hearts back to You. You are the Key. You are our Father. I praise You and ask for a mighty move of Your Hand around the world in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Jesus
    He’s the One who cares and understands
    Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him
    And you’ll know Him by the nail prints in His hand.
