Saturday Day 10
Pray for Social Services
When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest. You shall not strip your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the alien: I am the LORD your God.
Our scripture passage speaks of the Old Testament food stamp program. Today we want to pray for Social Services who provide help for the poor and needy in our community. They do far more than just food stamps but aid in housing, child protection, medical assistance, and much more. Working with people facing difficult circumstances can be discouraging and exhausting. So let us pray for their stamina and compassion of these servants as they attend to the well-being of some of the most challenged and disheartened people within our community.
Write out your thoughts, prayers, and actions that you have for today’s prayer topic.
