Use Us to Bring Relief to the World Around Us

This week's focus: Relief

Relief is defined as:

  • removal or lightening of something oppressive, painful, or distressing
  • things that are given to help people who are victims
In so many ways, Jesus, you have brought me relief through your grace, and I thank you. I pray that you would draw near to your people this election season and use us to bring your relief to the world around us. May our votes and our participation in this election affect relief, especially for those who are experiencing oppression, pain or distress. Make us your relief for victims in our world today.

2 Thessalonians 1:5-7 (NIV)

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.

In Your Prayers, Remember:

  • Pray for the families of those killed and for the many who were seriously injured in a horrific crash in New Mexico between a Greyhound bus and a semi-tractor trailer
  • Pray for the end to the drugs and violence that plagues the city of Chicago and many other major metropolitan areas on a daily basis
  • Pray for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey as he searches for a person to fulfill the remainder of Senator McCain's term, which ends in 2022

We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
