Prayer for the election - 4

We should pray that God would use us (as His body) to provide relief, support, and love for people when they look for it to come from other sources like the government.

Too often the government has failed at what the church has been commissioned to do which is to share the good news with accompanying good deeds.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Galatians 2:10 Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.
