We as Christians have an obligation to carry forth the fight for all who are outcast, and doubly so if we occupy positions of wealth and power. If we rest our hope on winning the fight, we will be often disappointed, and may lose hope ourselves. But if we take prayer to heart, we can root our efforts, private and public, in the eternal victory of God and his kingdom. And we can carry on the fight, in ourselves and in the world, knowing that our prayer is not cast before dead idols, but is offered to the living God.
