Prayers For Those That Are In Need

Dear God, I know that it is Your will to help those that are afflicted - to support the weak; to provide for the widows and orphans – and to help those that are in need.

Use my hands to be of service to those in need and use my voice to speak words of healing and encouragement to those that are afflicted and in distress.

Thank You for hearing my prayer,
