For the last 7 days our news headlines have been filled with the tragic news about the horrific kidnapping of a little girl. And in the last 24 hours, I have received at least 8 chain text messages asking me to pray for this situation. Which I will do.

But these text messages have provoked a reaction in me.

Why have I never received any chain text messages asking me to pray about the fact that 800 million people in our world go hungry every day.

Why are there never any news headlines about the 1500 children who become infected with HIV every day?

Why do those with power, influence and money not do something about the 1 billion people in our world who live on less than £4 a week?

Does anyone really care?
