40 Days to Save America – Day 27

For 40 Days (September 28 - November 6), I will be posting prayers for our country.  These prayers are from the prayer initiative 40 Days to Save America.  
                                        I pray you will join me in this prayer effort.  
You may sign up to have these prayers mailed directly to you at this link:

Day 27
L-rd, we pray for those who suffer spiritual, relational and/or economic poverty.
You said, L-rd, that the poor would always be with us. Give us Your wisdom and Your heart for the poor of all kinds — those who are poor in spirit, those who are lonely, and those with material needs.
Teach us Your will and ways to minister effectively to the needs of the least among us. Help us to discern and respond to the needs of the least of those among us with wisdom and vision. Show us how to deliver Your help, healing, companionship and comfort to those who struggle with needs.
Bring us to a renewed sense of community in America – neighbor helping neighbor, according to the teachings of Your word. Give us "Samaritan" hearts. Help us all to be givers not takers. In Yeshua's name, Amen.

We ask that You grant them wisdom and discernment, L-rd, and that You make them bold to do what is right in Your sight. L-rd, we ask that You direct their hearts to do Your will. In Yeshua's name, Amen.
