Will you pray for me? May I pray for you?
"Work, work, from morning until late at night. In fact, I have so much to do that I shall have to spend the first three hours of the day in prayer,” said Martin Luther. I am challenged every time I read this statement.
I think that I understand a little of what Martin Luther meant, when he said that he had work from morning until late at night, but I confess that I can’t say, with him, that I spend the first three hours of every day in prayer.
Today I’m reaching out to ask you to pray for me, personally, and for my dedicated staff, that we will have God’s strength and power as we confront the forces of darkness in our fight against sin, homelessness and hunger on these streets - - the pain . . . the misery, and the loneliness are heartbreaking.
Please pray that lost souls will be saved, hurting hearts healed, and shattered lives mended. And help us feed hungry people here on these streets.
We also want to pray for you. In fact, we are honored to share your needs and your heartaches. God’s Word promises, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.” I don’t know your heart’s desire, but God knows. If you need prayer, please call our offices or write to us on our website, www.fjm.org .
