A21 Prayer Guide – Day Five


PRAY FOR GLOBAL AWARENESS

The reality of traffiking is unveiled

Mark 4:22, Luke 12:2, Ephesians 5:13

MRK 4:22 NET – For nothing is hidden except to be revealed, and nothing concealed except to be brought to light.

LUK 12:2 NET – Nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known.

EPH 5:13 NET – But all things being exposed by the light are made evident.

For strategies to raise awareness

Psalm 25:4, Proverbs 3:5-6, Isaiah 55:9

PSA 25:4 NET – Make me understand your ways, O Lord ! Teach me your paths!

PRO 3:5-6 NET – Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.   Acknowledge him in all your ways,  and he will make your paths straight.

ISA 55:9 NET – for just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans.

For people to be stirred to action

Isaiah 58:6-7, James 1:22, James 2:16-17

ISA 58:6-7 NET – No, this is the kind of fast I want. I want you to remove the sinful chains, to tear away the ropes of the burdensome yoke, to set free the oppressed, and to break every burdensome yoke. I want you to share your food with the hungry and to provide shelter for homeless, oppressed people. When you see someone naked, clothe him! Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood!

JAS 1:22 NET – But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves.

JAS 2:16-17 NET – and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and eat well,” but you do not give them what the body needs, what good is it?  So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself.
