Day of Prayer and Fasting May 4, 2015
The leaders of the International Churches of Christ and of HOPE worldwide are asking for anyone who can and is willing to pray and fast in solidarity on Monday, May 4, 2015 for these needs:
- HOPE worldwide leadership selection: The HOPEww Board will begin interviewing applicants for the key roles of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer who will lead our charity into the next era. With our mission to preach, teach and heal as Jesus did, these decisions are crucial to see that we do our best to help the oppressed, the hungry and the homeless.
- Nepal Disaster Relief: HOPEww was among the first responders to help the tragic earthquake victims in Nepal. The HOPE worldwide school remains a hopeful light in Kathmandu. Volunteers at the school have been providing meals and shelter for those who have been displaced. Watch DisciplesToday.org and hopeww.org for frequent updates. Please click here to give to the HOPEww Disaster Fund or text HOPEWW to 80077 to give $10 (terms: mGive.org/T)
- Global Violence: The situations in Baltimore, Maryland and in the Ukraine as well as many others remind us that disciples and their families deal with challenging situations daily. Please pray for peace and that the gospel may bring more eternal peace.
Please announce this in your midweeks, Bible Talks and at your Sunday services.
Please share on social media, personal email, etc.
Pray, fast and serve someone.
No, this is the kind of fasting I want: Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people. Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. — Isaiah 58:6-7
