First Nations Monday
“Holding Up The People In Prayer”
Monday, March 9, 2015 – WK 10 – Compassionate Ministry
DID YOU know that it is impossible to be a ‘perfect’ Christian? Still, we must pursue that goal into eternity, risking heartache along the way.
Those serving in First Nations ministry can experience hurt and frustration to the point of endangering their walk with Christ.
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be loving and patient, knowing they are imperfect servants reaching out to broken people.
Jeremiah 22:2-3 says, “I am the Lord, so pay attention! You have been allowing people to cheat, rob and take advantage of widows, orphans, and foreigners who live here. Innocent people have become victims of violence, and some of them have even been killed. But now I command you to do what is right and see that justice is done. Rescue everyone who has suffered from injustice.”
Ask our Creator to encourage our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, who strive to live right in a fallen world.
ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES (4 translations: The Scriptures, CEV, Amplified, KJV): To read all the additional Scriptures, in the following 4 translations, as well as listen to the audio of this prayer point, visit the http://www.firstnationsmonday.com/prayerguide/wk10.htm .
“The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. Please also note the links to Scripture in Cherokee.
