PRAYER FOR THE LESS FORTUNATE & THE LONELY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASONSThank God for the Gift of Prayer in that our loving Saviour made a way for us by His Blood Atoning sacrifice on the cross! It is a privileged to have the inherited authority as a daughter of our Heavenly Father to stand before Him and beckon on the behalf of ourselves and others.
1.) For all the elderly that are widowed.
2.) For the elderly in nursing homes.
3.) Elderly couples that either never had
children or children/gr. children do not visit.
4.) Sick & Disabled
5.) Parents who have lost a child.
6.) For orphans.
7.) Pastor's and Ministry leaders (yes,
they do get lonely & hurt).
As well, we cannot forget what we call politically correct the 'less fortunate'. Every situation that has led to financially misfortune is quite different. Irregardless, we should lift up those that are desperate in 'need'. Sin AT TIMES, can lead to great deprivation. We must pray for all to be fed, clothed and sheltered. In addition; spiritually healing and salvation.
Personally, we know that sickness can lead to a great basin of needs and desires. Faith does increase as we who know this place quite well as we see God bring the manna daily. Yet, many are going hungry, have a gallon of gas left in their tanks-have children who they need to care for and are yet, staring at an empty wallet. Instead of condemnation from the Children of God-we need to pray and be willing to be led to help as well.
1.) Pray for income/jobs to open for those who have none.
2.) For those who are unable to work, yet have great need.
3.) For young adults who are stepping out brand new in the
work force and need an income.
4.) For families who are trying hard, yet are not even
5.) For families, couples & individuals who stepped out of
the norm (of financial security) to walk by faith
as they answered a particularcall into the ministry.
Ps. 10:17, 18 "O Lord, You have heard the desire and the longing of the humble and oppressed; You will prepare and strengthen and direct their hearts, You will cause Your ear to hear,
18 To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man, who is of the earth, may not terrify them any more."
