40 Days of Prayer - Day 11

Day 11 – The Local Church

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace. – 1 Peter 4:10

Hands at Work envisions the local church in Africa effectively caring for the most vulnerable. Pray for the church to be gracious and compassion; understanding the biblical mandate to care for the orphans and widows in their communities. Ask God to open the hearts and minds in the church to see the needs of the most vulnerable living around them. Pray that local pastors and churches in the areas where Hands at Work are serving will rise up and take on the responsibility of serving the poor and the destitute.
