Today, pray for yourself and everyone else praying during 40 Days 2013. Ask the Lord for strength. Ask Him to help you not grow weary in battling for the orphans on your knees.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress - James 1:27
During 40 Days of Prayer 2013, our global prayer community has come together to pray and reflect on each prayer point. On February 23rd, a recent visitor to Africa from the UK posted her response to the daily prayer point. She was impacted by the quote from local volunteer Emily Dinhira on the need to pray for children who lose a parent to HIV/AIDS.
"I was privileged to meet Emily on my trip to South Africa to spend some time in Belfast and Somerset with a group from my church, and she is an amazing woman who truly lives for God and inspires me and so many others so much. God is able to love so many people through her and others like her, and I'm praying for them and for the precious children God has put under their great care." - Rachel Burton
