This week's focus: BusinessChristian humanitarian ministries, often referred to as NGOs or “Non-Government Organizations,” provide aid to people living in poverty or who have become victims of natural disasters, acts of violence, and other unexpected tragedies. They see Christ in those they serve, remembering His words in Matthew 25:35: “For I was hungry, and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in” (NKJV). Pray by name for humanitarian ministries working today in America that you support or are familiar with. Pray for the protection of Christian aid workers who often work in dangerous conditions to minister to people in need. Especially pray that Christian ministries will not compromise their responsibility to share the Gospel with the people they minister to. Pray they will have many opportunities to share the message of salvation openly in areas that might not otherwise be freely open to Christian evangelism.
Proverbs 3:27-29“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it with you. Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you.”
In Your Prayers, Remember:
- That Hurricane Irma's impact on Florida and the surrounding states will be minimized
- The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey as so many people seek to rebuild their lives
- The children's lives affected by these disasters and that some form of stability will be restored
We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
