Week 3 - The Local Response: The Church
Hands at Work envisions the local church in Africa effectively caring for the most vulnerable. This week, we pray for the local church to answer God’s call to respond to the cry of the poor.
And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me” - Matthew 25:40 (ESV)
Hands at Work envisions the local church in Africa effectively caring for the most vulnerable. Pray for Hands at Work to connect with both churches in the poor communities where we work and churches in larger, more affluent areas in Africa who believe in our vision. Pray for opportunities to meet with pastors and other church leaders to build relationships, and for more Christians and churches in Africa to rise up to the call to care for the most vulnerable.
