May I Help Your Needy, a Prayer for February 19

Daily Prayer
February 19
This prayer for today is written by a poet and is like a poem but may be used as a reflective prayer or devotional meditation.

In a generation that has made prayer into a shopping list this is a prayer of devoion first and what request it makes is not self gratifing but God focused.

It begins with thankfulness, then moves to acknowledging God's purpose for us is to serve Him and that service includes serving others. asks for humility and to see others. This prayer asks for the motivation of love to give the power to serve. It ends with a word of commitment and praise to bring God glory.

It is best to read this prayer a few times and then pray it in your own words.

You are welcome to print a copy and take it with you or bookmark this page so you can come back.

I hope it is a blessing to your day.

May God Help The Needy
Prayer for February 19

Father in Heaven, thank You for this day
May I look up to You in faith for aid.
Keep me from vanity's deceitfulness.
Help me remember Your purpose for me;
That in serving You gives me meaning.
Teach me to always do what pleases You.
Give me the humble heart of a servant,
For serving others I truly serve You.
The world today has so many needs,
You have given me gifts to meet those needs.
Free my hands that I may do acts of good.
Clear my eyes to see others as worthy,
Beautiful, and treasured by God.
May I follow Christ's example of love;
A love that is active, sacrificial and giving,
Help me show kindness to others this day.
Let me be light to all those I meet.
So that they and I may give You glory.

The world is a needy place the answer for the need is God's people filled with his spirit obeying his command to love and serve. God loves the lost people and therefore so should we. We are his expression of love to mankind. We express this love in acts of service. If God's spirit is in us these acts will be humble and have the esteem of others at its core. It is only through God that we can truly love others.
