Prayer For The Needy Ones
“Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.” (Deuteronomy 15:10-11)
The population of the whole world is over 8 billion now. Despite the increase in the population of the whole world, the Almighty God in His infinite mercy and compassion consistently provide abundant food resources unto mankind. He provided an abundance of the sea so also abundance of fruits and vegetable on the land. He had provided wisdom to people through mechanized agriculture in the arable lands all over the world, so that there would be no shortage of food resources. But because of our sins and wickedness, mankind had problems with management of this important resources, many food stuff expired, wasted ends up in garbage.
- Let us pray that God may forgive us our sins and wicked ways and, in His mercy, raise faithful Josephs in all the nations of the world that are facing hardship of famine in our time. Let us pray that God will open the eyes of our leaders and endow them with wisdom to manage the abundant resources of the nations in love and equity, with ultimate goal to solve the problems of the hardship that the needy ones are facing so that the souls of the innocent needy citizens in those nations will not perish because of the wicked and bad administration of their leaders in Jesus name, Amen.
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” (Isaiah 58:10-11)
- Let us lift up the abundant rich and blessed people all over the world into God’s hand that they may become a helping hands of God in considering the way they can use their opulence and abundant resources to influence and accelerate the decisions of the officers of the national government to alleviate the burden of the poor people in the nations of their dwellings in Jesus name, Amen.
- Being abundantly rich is not limited to the people that are blessed with precious silver and gold alone. Let us lift up all the spiritually rich Fathers in the Lord, the servants of Most High God, that God may touch their hearts to see the need to intercede fervently for the nations like Elijah prayed for nation of Israel that God’s rain of mercy, and rain of love and peace, and rain of abundant fruit of righteousness may fall upon all the nations of the world in Jesus name, Amen.
“For the cause of the oppressed and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise, ” says the LORD. “I will bring safety to him who yearns.” (Psalm 12:5) “Men cry out under great oppression; they plead for relief from the arm of the mighty.” (Job 35:9)
- Let us seek the face of our Merciful Father and humbly talk to Him about the oppression and groaning of the needy ones in our communities. Let pray and plead that our Heavenly Father may listen to the cry of the poor and bring His divine relief to mankind in terms of healing our nations and in terms of meeting us at the points of our various needs through His Mighty hands of mercy in Jesus name, Amen.
