21 Day Fasting and Prayer Focus – Day 18 (Tuesday)
 
Word: Community
 
Prayer:
 
Lord Jesus, may my heart, mind and efforts be inclined to the needs of my community. I pray that the passion that was in you to reach the lost, the hurting, the marginalized, would also be in me. May my Christian life extend way beyond the “church” walls and may I serve as an extension of your eyes, ears, hands and feet. In Your mighty name I pray, AMEN!
 
Scripture Verses:
 
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
 
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
 
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
 
“But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”
 
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
 
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
 
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
 
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
 
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
