John 1:12
“Yet to all who receive him, to those who believe in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
Pray today for the families and friends of new believers. Pray that the whole family becomes true believers and accepts Christ together.

Ephesians 5:1-2
“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
Today, use our children as an example of God’s love. Pray that the love of Christ will overflow from our hearts and minds into the lives of the oppressed and hopeless. Give of yourself to help the children in Christ’s name.

Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Maisha Kamili began with a vision to build an orphanage. When obstacles were put in the way, MKK kids were initiated. Pray that God will guide their strategies and efforts.

Psalms 118:25-26
“O Lord save us; O Lord grant us success. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. From the house of the Lord we bless you.”
Thank you Lord for sending those who help the children. Bless them as they become the hands to these children who need to know the love of your touch.

Psalms 20:7
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
For some homeless children the only trust they have is in each other. Pray for the children to find a safe home with food, clothing and shelter, provided by a trustworthy disciple of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 4:6-7
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
All of us worry about some things. We worry about the health and welfare of our own families as well as those of the orphans and widows, but God says don’t worry. Pray. Pray to God and be thankful that God has a plan for all of us and trust in God’s plan.

Mark 10:45
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
A ransom is the price paid for someone’s release. The price Christ paid for our redemption was his death on the cross. To pass on that knowledge is why we are working in Kenya. Thank you Jesus, for showing us how to serve others and for loving us.
