For the Helpless

"Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves.
Protect the rights of all who are helpless."
Proverbs 31: 8 (GNT)

Almighty God, have mercy on us!  When we fail to speak up for life and truth, we sin against You. Forgive our guilt, and cleanse us.

Give Your people courage to stand and boldly declare the truth in love. May we stand firm and defend those who are defenseless, afflicted, and needy. Please give us wisdom to speak words of hope and healing - words that are loving, kind, and considerate. May our words bring You glory. Give each of us a gentle, humble spirit.

Give our grandchildren the strength to resist sexual temptation. Protect them from the evil one. Bless them with wisdom, and pure hearts and minds. In the Name of Jesus, the Hope of the world...amen.

During "40 Days for Life",  please continue to pray for:
  • Families of pregnant teens to lean on God for help, strength, and wisdom. ( Ps. 18: 2 ).
  • Courage, peace, and assurance of God's love and protection for pregnant women who have decided against abortion ( Ps. 20: 1- 2; Ps. 119: 76 ).
  • Provision of God's strength, help, and resources for families who want to adopt ( Esther 2:7Ps. 20: 4Ps. 54:4 ).
