Do now worry about anything, but pray and ask god for everyting you need, always giving thanks. And God's peace, which is so great we can not understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 NCV
God is our Strength by Jim Leamn
Worry is our enemy! It creeps into our lives quietly, masqueraded as an acceptable human response to living in an imperfect world of gang killings, rampent theft, and a goverment that's so corrupt, they become involved themselves. This diversion leads us into focusing on our own problem instead of God, who loves us and is in complete control. There's an easy, effective way to totaly eliminate worry...PRAY!
Prayer is more than simply asking God for help. It is also a time of worship and thanks. As I think over the past years that ORI has been involved in ministry here, God has blessed the staff in so many ways, in which we give Him our Praise and Thanks. Daily we face the constant threat of robbery as we drive through the crowded streets in the city and constantly we see accidents on the crowded highways, of which we've escaped, with His protection any serious mishaps. Every thank-you serves as a personal reminder of God's love and faithfullnes in our lives and provides us with a source of comfort, strength, encouragement, and peace.
Miracles in the Children's Lives by Maredith Freed
When many people think of the word "orphan," they think of the children that they see in the advertisements concerning orphans, but not necessarily any child in specific. But, once people meet orphans and can actually put names to faces, many people begin to pray for these orphans by name and for specific requests. These prayers have had major effects on the children and have helped change their lives.
Approximately three months ago, a sibling set of eight children were dropped off at an orphanage. The children were malnourished, dehydrated, lice ridden and dirty from head to toe. The word got out about these kids and immediately people began praying for them. Because of the prayers from people all over the world, along with a little TLC, the children began adjusting to their new home, learning a new language (they only spoke a native dialect), and living a life completely different from what they ever had before. Now, only about three month later, the children are doing excellent! Who knows where they would have been if there had not been an army of prayer warriors standing with them?
