Day 19 – For the Hungry, Homeless and the Poor Contributed by Deaconess Mozelle Watkins
Meditative Thought - We will be blessed when we do God’s work in helping the poor and afflicted.
He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.”
Proverbs 28: 27
Did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? James 2:5.
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and justice for the poor. Psalm 140:12.
Lord Hear Our Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, we know that but for your grace and mercy we too would be in need. It is no crime to poor. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. Bless us dear Father so that we may be given the power and resources to help the hungry, homeless and the poor. Bless those who are hungry, homeless and poor so they may be given your strength to help themselves. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
