40 Days of Prayer - Day 16

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. – James 1:27 (NIV)

As so many of Africa’s most vulnerable children are out of our reach, ask God to place the desire in the hearts of the churches across all of Africa to take ownership of their communities and recognize their calling from James 1:27 – ‘to visit orphans and widows in their affliction.’ Pray for the churches’ active involvement in the lives of the most vulnerable.

Along with being on the Regional Support Team in Zambia, Blessings is a pastor in his local church in Mulenga Community, Zambia. He has recognised his calling to serve the most vulnerable, and he is an example to other local churches around him to serve and care.
