Day 21- India Prays

The  Lord blessed me   with  a  great  day ,  no  stress  or tension. I  shared  happiness  and  hospitality  with  many.

He  led  me  beside waters.
 On  days  like  these  I  feel   God  is giving  me  a  day 's  vacation  in   the  original Garden of  Eden. (smile).
Even the  extra  power  cut   and  slight   cold   doesn' t bother  me

Thank  you  for praying  for  Tara about  whom I  wrote  on Day 17
I met  her  last  night  at  the  mid week  Bible  study and  she  told  me  that  her  husband  had  arrived   yesterday for  a  short   holiday  and  he  even  dropped  her  off  at  church  for  the  Bible  study!!!
How  great  is our  God.

Oct. 2nd is  Gandhi 's birth  anniversary. Christians have  reserved   this national holiday  to fast  and pray  for our land.

Friends  around  the   world can  join  us. You can  visit  their  web site  or  like  them on  Facebook - search for  India Prays. Here is  their  latest  posting on Facebook.
India is still an under-developed country. We see poverty and the life conditions of fellow humans; begging, illiteracy, unemployment, short-sightedness, hunger, diseases, child labour..., women abuse, high rate of infant and maternal mortality, life expectancy, crime, injustice, oppression, desperation, discrimination etc.

How do we tackle this challenge? It is the duty of everyone and of the governments to alleviate and erase it. A number of legislation are made to empower the poor. It requires effective implementation.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Prov. 31:8,9).

Pray that:

+ As Individuals, we will be selfless, considerate and creative in sharing our lives and resources with the needy

+ Indians will see the value of each small step and not be immobilised by the great extent of needs

+ Good and just leaders rise up across India, who fully understand the heart of God for those who are oppressed

5 Fertilize my soul:

October 2nd, what a great day to pray for India on Gandhi's day. You have shown us pictures of Gandhi's day before, it was an impressive sight with all the children dressed as Gandhi. I'd like to join in and pray for India. It's a land close to my heart.
I also like the idea of you having a vacation day in paradise.
May God bless you and give you of his peace now and always.

Thank God for those "vacation" days He provides here and there along the way....

He gives us "times of refreshing".

But for India there are things that can be done, little by little. But it really awaits the coming kingdom of the Lord Jesus before there will be the perfect administration that will banish poverty in the world.
