In honor of the upcoming Orphan Sunday (November 4th), we are hosting a Prayer Campaign to prepare our hearts and minds for the day set aside to honor the orphaned, knowing that PRAYER is the best place to start!
We’re thankful that you’ve tuned in for Day 3 of our prayer campaign as we pray for the Church, the body of Christ, and our role we have been given as believers. Let’s peek again into His Word to see how our Father God has described this role….
“Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.” Isaiah 1:17
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” James 1:27
“When you gather the grapes in your vineyard, don’t glean the vines after they are picked. Leave the remaining grapes for the foreigners, orphans, and widows.” Deuteronomy 24:21
Learn. Seek. Help. Defend. Fight. Care. Do some of these words sound familiar from yesterday? When we love like God loves and our hearts break for what breaks His, we, through His spirit, have the opportunity to be Jesus to a world in need. Jesus himself prayed in John 17 that God’s love would be in us! Now, what are we going to do with that love?
Today, please join us in praying for your church, your orphan ministry, and YOUR role in the body of Christ.
Dear Father, Today I pray for myself as a church member. I ask that You would lead me, that I might walk in obedience. Show me how to encourage my church family to care for the needs of orphans.
I pray for my church members and leaders. Provide for our church’s orphan care ministry. Please provide people, prayers, money, food and supplies to give the orphans all the care they need.
I pray that every member of my church would remember and acknowledge and praise you God because before the world was made, You loved us and chose us, and that Your unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into Your own family by bringing us to Yourself through Jesus Christ and that this gave You great pleasure. (Ephesians 1:3-5) In Jesus’ Name, Amen
Today we ask that you put YOUR name in the comment so we can join you in prayer!
