For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’ (Deuteronomy 15:11 ESV)
ибо нищие всегда будут среди земли твоей; потому я и повелеваю тебе: отверзай руку твою брату твоему, бедному твоему и нищему твоему на земле твоей. (Второзаконие 15:11 Russian)
Merciful, kind and gracious Heavenly Father ~ thank you Lord, for the priceless gift of life on this new day. Bless the followers of Jesus around the world with enough goods for this day and some to generously share with the poor. Grant more of your perfect wisdom to leaders in local congregations in the House of God, so that contributions will be used to the honor and glory of Christ our King. Shame those who wear the name of Christ but keep their hands tightly closed. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
