Lord, we pray for the downtrodden today, those people who seem to have no hope, the people of the street, the people, the children we see starving to death in far away lands. Lord, we pray You will use this very difficult time in their lives to lead them to spiritual growth, fulfillment, and to Jesus Christ and eternal life. We pray You will send help to them through the church, helping the givers to grow spiritually as well. Lord, help us, and give us a heart to help when we can. Lord, help us to recognise opportunities to help others, and to act upon this need in such a way to give permanent help.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
