Today is third day that we will be praying for specific needs for the poor. We will be looking at what God’s Word has to say and focus our daily prayers on three needs.
1. Healthcare Luke 10: 34-35 - He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
2. Education 2 Timothy 3:14-16 - But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
3. Employment 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 - and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
Be wise today and always – pray that God’s plans and purposes are attainable for everyone.
