40 Days of Prayer - Day 5

Week 2 - The Crisis: Poorest of the Poor

Hands at Work is committed to working in the poorest, most dysfunctional communities in the countries we serve. From HIV/AIDS to violent unrest, the most vulnerable people are surrounded by afflictions that are difficult to comprehend.

Pray with Bethuel as we enter Week 2 together: 

The sick man answered [Jesus], “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; and while I am making my way, someone else steps down ahead of me” - John 5:7 (NRSV)

The HIV/AIDS epidemic continues to end lives, and leave children orphaned. Pray for advances in healthcare and wisdom among all organisations and institutions striving to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. Ask God to guide Hands at Work as we respond to the crisis of orphaned children who have lost one or both of their parents. Like the sick man, the most vulnerable people who are infected are often denied access to treatment – ask God to breakthrough and make a way for them to be healed.
