Daily Prayer for October 14th, 2018    

Good morning, God—thank You! 🙂

Please bless the victims of hurricane Michael, and any and all disasters. By Your mighty hand, lift them out of the pit of despair, providing food, clothing, and shelter for them all. Show me how to help. Let me demonstrate Jesus’ love and compassion through acts of giving—nourishment, possessions, or a helping hand. In Jesus name. Amen.

1 John 3:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?

Philippians 2:4 Good News Translation (GNT)

And look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own.

James 2:14-17 Good News Translation (GNT)

Faith and Actions

14 My friends, what good is it for one of you to say that you have faith if your actions do not prove it? Can that faith save you? 15 Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. 16 What good is there in your saying to them, “God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!”—if you don’t give them the necessities of life? 17 So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions, then it is dead.

Matthew 25:35-40 Good News Translation (GNT)

35 I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, 36 naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.’ 37 The righteous will then answer him, ‘When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? 38 When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’ 40 The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!’
