Friday Morning Outreach 24/01/14

We praise God and give Him thanks for all that He has done.

(Psalms 115.1)
Not to us, Lord, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.

We went out this morning, but not before praying to our Lord for guidance and protection.

We started the morning in Church in meditation, then went out and prayed FOR the streets ON thestreets. One member of our team saw a sister standing on the street corner and went to speak to her. She seemed shy at first, He said “good morning” and she said “good morning”. Then she went cold, not as much afraid but remaining at a distance, like she wasn’t open to conversation even though she knew he wanted to talk. So he smiled and left and prayed for God to protect her and to reach her.

Our sisters are usually more open, it is rare that this happens. Do you know what the hardest words to say are? Do you think it is “Otolaryngology”, “obstreperous” Or “consubstantiation”? No, the hardest words to say are “Sorry” and “Help”. We (as children of our Lord) need support and guidance from Him (as well as from one another) and the first step to doing that is to say “Sorry” and “Help”, for it is written in (James 5.16) “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective“.

After our brother left and came back to church he meditated and asked for guidance and reflected on what happened. He left, prayed for the street corners where our sisters usually stand and went on with his day.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ spoke that he came to save those who were lost… (Mark 2.16.17) When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners“. So please show love to those in pain by poverty, homelessness, addiction, diseases or any other pains that damage their lives, society may think that they are worthless, but Jesus thinks that they are worth dying for.

We thank you for your continued support and prayers, please keep them coming.

Thank you and God Bless you all.

Real Hope.
