Prayer of the Day

Prayer for today (10/20/17)

Father, thank you for wisdom to help your people. We all stand in need of your help, some a little more than others and some a little less than others, but we all need you. Help me to be concerned about someone else’s welfare. Don't let me always think it's about me and forgetting about my brother. Lord, thank you for your understanding, showing me how to be helpful to others, allowing your love to come shinning through me to give someone help in their situations. I ask that you look on them and take care of them too. Amen.
