Prayer for September 7

Prayer for September 7: Please pray with me.  God of many riches, today we pray for those in poverty.  Be with them and walk with them.  Radically reorient us to see the needs of the poor.  But also help us to see the person, not just the material needs Lord.  Poverty is more than just material lack – it affects many parts of a person – the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional.  When we only try to alleviate poverty through material means, we aren’t even touching on half of the challenge Lord.  Help us to stop just throwing money at the problem, but rather to throw love and care at a person, to build a lasting relationship with those in poverty, to empower people to make decisions, and to walk with people on their journey from poverty to thriving life.  Amen.
