Monday - orphans and widows

Prayer:  Great God,  receive the prayers today from those who call upon Your name.  Grant that we may all understand and  know what we ought to do today.  Grant us the grace and power to faithfully follow Your Words to us each and everyday.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

Read  James  1: 26 - 27
James reminds  us that  we have to act inwardly and outwardly as mature Christians.  If we say we are Christian  and then  gossip with our family and our friends,  this is not a good example of what is means to be a Christian.     
James writes that Christians can be  called Christians  if  they look after orphans  and widows and keep themselves from the way of the world. 
Today,  how will we look after orphans and widows and only  talk  to others  with God's  love and joy in our thoughts.  

Prayer:  Almighty God,  we lift up to You this day  orphans and widows and those who need Your help and love.   O LORD,  grant to  each of us, and the Churches we belong to, the energy and enthusiasm to raise up and come to the aid of orphans and widows.    This we ask in Your Son's  name.  Amen.
