This week's focus: Business
Christian 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.
“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, Also Remember:
- Pray for the people of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, who were hit by a devastating and deadly cyclone. NGO’s, such as World Vision, say there is dire concern for the orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children in the region.
- Pray for all those affected by the catastrophic flooding in Nebraska and surrounding areas. Three-fourths of Nebraska's 93 counties have declared a state of emergency, and there has been tremendous loss of physical property. At least three people have lost their lives.
We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
This devotion was produced in partnership with Every Home for Christ.
