DAY 8 - Pray for Widows and Orphans
Pastor Deborah Butler
WORD OF FAITH SOUTHFIELD, MI
Hello. Welcome to 30 days of prayer. This is day 8 with Pastor Deborah Butler. Today we are going to be praying for widows and orphans. In Psalms chapter 68, verse 5, the Bibles says, “A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.” The Amplified says He is protector and a judge of the widow. So one of things that you want to talk about when you talk with God is talk about His divine protection over the widows.
Then in Proverbs 15, verse 25, it says, “The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.” In other words, He will establish and make secure the borders of the consecrated widow. So we want to pray and we want to just thank Him for making the borders, habitation - everything that touches the consecrated widow is totally protected by Him – that orphans are totally protected by Him. He promises protection and our God never lies.
We as a church and as a church family can use our authority and remind God of His promises to the widows and to the orphans. And if you are a widow or orphan, you can remind God and remind yourself of His goodness and of His protection. Form your mouth to only talk about the goodness of God, His protection of you, His protection of you as an orphan or as a widow and that He will make sure your borders are secure. So join us as we pray for our widows and our orphans, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
