40 Days of Prayer, day 1

Today we are starting "40 Days of Prayer for Orphan Care."

40 Days of Prayer is a resource given out by the Christian Alliance for Orphans, creators of the Orphan Sunday movement.  Please join us in praying for the fatherless for 40 days, ending on Orphan Sunday.

Pray alone when necessary and meet whenever possible to join together in agreement in prayer.  Gather two or three (or more) people in a home or church or anywhere and the Lord will be with you and hear your prayers as it says in Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of it."

We ask that today you pledge, along with everyone at Two Hearts, to commit to the next 40 days.  You can pledge your support publicly by commenting on this post and helping us spread the word, or privately.  Just commit.

Day one: "Today, pray that the Lord would give you a personal sense of responsibility for the next 40 days (and beyond) for praying for orphans, your pastor, your church, and your community.  Ask Him to break your heart for the orphans.  Ask that He would help you see orphans with His eyes and His heart.  Ask Him to use this 40 days of prayer to change you and your church."
