From the island of Haiti where the Desmarais family lives to the Miller's North Carolina home, tragedy has struck. In recent years, an earthquake devastated Haitian life and tornadoes paved their path of despair through North Carolina. The spiritual poverty in both places is equally great..about 85% of all of their people do not know Christ.
Special prayer is needed for those who live in spiritual and physical poverty. If you live in North Carolina, your mission here is great.
“...love your neighbor as yourself...” (Lev. 19:18) Lead them to Christ.
PRAY FOR NORTH CAROLINA'S MILLER FAMILY AND HAITI'S DESMARAIS FAMILY
Lord, from the small island of Haiti to the forested hills of North Carolina, please bring comfort to those who have had so much loss. Let Your Holy Spirit strongly seek out the lost, bringing hope to the hurting.
In our state, Lord, there is much work to be done! So many do not know You! Please bring much needed hope to the lost through the promise of Your Word!
Fill us, Lord, with Your Holy Spirit. Let us go out into our communities and speak Your truth to the lost and the hurting.
Give us an awareness, Father, of those who don't yet know you. Please, equip us with Your Spirit and Your Word, to help tell others in our neighborhood what You have done in our lives.
From tornado-ravaged towns to the wealthiest suburbs, we pray that all should be healed through Your Grace!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
