You ask us to care for widows and orphans and also to have compassion and mercy on the needy. Let us look to You, Jesus as the example. Jesus I pray that over the next few years we as American Christians can help more of our people who silently live at or below the poverty line. Stir up a fire in Your church for those who don’t get to eat regularly. For those who don’t have a roof over their heads. For the ones who don’t have sufficient clothing. Show these groups to us Lord and compell us to be Your hands and feet so that we can help these people and, also show them the salvation that is waiting for them. Thank You Father that You gave us Jesus to model our lives after. I ask that you forgive us our sins, both known and unknown. Cleanse us of the stain of sin by the blood of Jesus. Equip us for the harvest Lord. In Jesus name, AMEN.
