Justice: Shield and Defender

The poor and the marginalised in our society, just like in Israel of old, are liable to be injured and oppressed in the administration of justice or denied of it in totality. This evil is strictly condemned in the word of God (Leviticus 19:15).

Partiality in judicial decisions, and injustice under the pretext of enforcement of the law, are an abomination in the sight of our God, the God of all Creation, and such other unfairness exposes our judicial and police officers of whatever rank, who are guilty of these malpractices to divine vengeance.

When our Judiciary and the Police Force robs the needy of justice, when they trample the rights of the poor citizenry of Kenya, when they prey on the widowed or rob the fatherless in this land, the prophet Isaiah declares woes against any such powers.

These warnings are against superior powers (ie the Supreme Court judges, Court of Appeal judges, High Court judges, Magistrates of subordinate courts) that devise and decree unrighteous judgements! He does the same for any inferior officers (Court clerks), that draws up such judgements, and for Registry officials that enter them on record! (Isaiah 10:1-2).

On this our 25th day of Prayer and fasting at Mavuno Church (see guide here), we are reminded to pray that a sense of justice and equity would prevail within these critical arms of government for the sake of our country. Justice be our SHIELD and DEFENDER.
