Our Prayer Focus

Week of November 23, 2015


Give Freely

Thanksgiving week, a time when we should count our many blessings.
Not just for turkey and cranberry sauce or homemade cornbread dressing.
Be thankful for the warm bed you slept in just last night.
Be thankful for warm clothes, even though they may fit a little tight.

Thank the one who checks you out at the store or in a mall.
Be thankful for your living space with a roof and also walls.
Some are not so fortunate, they search for warmth and food. They don't have all the simple things that make our lives so good.

So pray for someone who's in need,pray they find a way
to get through this Thanksgiving, to get through another day.
"Give to the Poor'" God tells us in scriptures we are told.
Give generously, give freely, give to all those young and old.

Scripture Proverbs 19:17
He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.

I've listed some other scriptures for you to read throughout this week to remind us to continue to be thankful and to give, not just this week but always. Blessings to all for this Holiday Season.

James 2:15,16
Proverbs 14:31, 22:9
1 John 3:17-19
Matthew 10:8b, 25:35-40
