Let us pray with you
"Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour."
Matthew 24:4 (ESV)
Lord, as we prepare to celebrate Your first coming, help us also keep in mind that You may return at any time. Along with our lights and decorations that will fade with the turning of the calendar, may our hearts be filled with expectation and may we live our lives in the power of Your Holy Spirit. Help us to shine as lights in the darkness until we all see with our eyes the light of Your coming. In Jesus’ name,
Christ is alive and can be served directly by serving
those in the greatest need. Please donate today.
As a faith-based organization, prayer is a fundamental part of our ministry. We pray daily for the poor who are still suffering, our donors, and each other. Prayer renews our sense of mission and offers inspiration for the work that we do each day.
Our ministry reflects God's unconditional love, which surrenders all, inspires trust and faith, and embraces all people, regardless of race, status or creed. We believe that Christ is alive, and that we can best serve Him by assisting those in greatest need. (Matthew 25:40)

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
Father, so many times I dare to question You with the “whys” in my life, and I later realize Your plans for me are perfect. Allow me to trust You and understand this is Your will to teach me perseverance. I must remember that You walk beside me, and that, each step I take, when I surrender to You, guides me to see Your perfect plan come to fruition. The timing of Your will seems like forever, but when “forever” comes, it is the way it should be, it is more than I can imagine. I know my prayers are heard, and I know You will answer me at the appropriate time. When my heart feels sad and hopeless, remind me of Your sacrifice when You sent Your son Jesus to give me the hope that I long for. Thank You for the challenges that keep me connected to You. I love You for loving me. I pray all of this in Your precious son Jesus’ name. Amen.
