A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Are you focusing on helping the financially/materially poor while neglecting your and their spiritual poverty?

While on earth, Christ could have put an end to poverty! Why did He not do so?

What should be most important to humanity, the food that perishes or the food of eternal life?

Is your heart hardened even when you stand before the most urgent needs of the poor?

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR AND ACTIVELY HELP THE NEEDY
