Please pray for our homeless, poor, needy, marginalized and stigmatized in our community. They are all precious people, who need loving, caring and commune with others. They cannot be stereotyped nor should they feel rejected, but with so many doors closed to them these days, how can they not feel that way?
As we served hot boxed meals yesterday, we reached out to them with a small package, "You Matter". We have invited feedback from each one to hear their reality in these lockdown times. We have told them that we are mobilizing the church family throughout Manitoba to more urgent prayer.
Pray also that the authorities will give greater consideration to the needs of our street guests.
Isaiah 41 vs 17 - "As for the poor, the needy, those seeking water— when there is none and their tongues are parched from thirst— I, the LORD, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, won't abandon them." How exciting it is to be on the Lords side!
