Honoring Women And Children In A World At War

Day 29
with my You Version reading plan

"Stolen Childhoods"

which comes from

Prayers for Crown Jewels
Topic #28

{I had not given up reading these and praying, I just stopped sharing here because it's already so beautifully done through this reading plan and at "Prayers for Crown Jewels" website, which daily features one of the topics continually. However, today's was too important to pass up on this site ... so ... please pray}

"Children around the world are missing, forced into the streets, or commandeered into war, slavery, or sex. They do not have a safe place to flourish and mature. So many millions have been drugged, beaten, and coerced to do things that would normally be abhorrent to them. Right now, these precious ones are confused, frightened, and hopeless. There is no one like You, O Lord, who can save them. Be their stronghold in times of trouble. Bring these children to Jesus so He might gather them into His arms and bless them.

Today be the God of all comfort in some way to each. Because of Your great love and tender mercy, shine upon these children in their darkness and shadow of death. Guide their feet into the way of peace. Set them free! Bring believers into their lives to help them sort out all the rejection, lies, and deceit forced upon them. Their sweet voices will sing praises to Your name. They will give You thanks among the nations for rescuing them from violent men and women.

Woe to those who cause little ones who believe in You to stumble! It is better for them to tie a heavy rock around their necks and throw themselves into the sea.

We grieve with those who do not know where their child/ren is/are. Is he/she alive? Hungry? Ill? In pain or danger? The questions never cease. Their child is never far from their thoughts and prayers. Dear Father, comfort these parents. Give them the peace that passes all understanding. Supernaturally return these children to their families. Bring Spirit-filled believers to support, listen, and counsel as all in the family work through the myriad of spiritual, financial, emotional, and relational issues. Jehovah-Nissi (the LORD our Banner), set up Your banner of love over these families. "

Psalms 59:9; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 1:78-79; Psalms 18:48-49; Matthew 18:6; Philippians 4:7; Song of Songs 2:4

I have shared others previously here
but it is best to follow along daily

Make these much needed prayers
part of your daily quiet time
with Our Lord
set aside time to read and pray

Prayer is the best way for us to

You offer forgiveness to each and every one of those guilty of not keeping Your holy standard even to the one who has been responsible for despicable acts against women and children. That is Your Father-heart. However, Your righteousness cannot tolerate the wicked in Your presence, O Consuming Fire. ..."

Honoring Women And Children In A World At War #9

at my You Version Bible Reading Plan this is #9 
"Education of Girls & Freedom from Sexual Harassment"

Revelation 1:3; Psalms 25:4-5; Philippians 4:8

and the start of this

"Heavenly Father, You place a high priority on reading and meditating on Your Word. You bless those individuals who read and hear Your words. Throughout history, disastrous errors came into Your Church and cultures when the general populous became illiterate. When the few and powerful are the only individuals who know how to read, personal liberties are minimal or non-existent.

The more education a girl has, the less likely she is to be a victim ... "

Honoring Women And Children In A World At War #7

This is the one on my You Version Plan for today

"Corruption, Lying and Stealing"
  • Jeremiah 22:3; Hebrews 10:19; 
  • 2 Peter 2:19-20; Psalms 1:1; 
  • 2 Peter 1:3;Psalms 5:6; Psalms 109:7-8
  •                 Deuteronomy 16:19; 

however, "Prayers for Crown Jewels" has a different one

[both links are to "Prayers for Crown Jewels"]
Prayers on both topics are wonderful, so are the scripture readings chosen.

"Dear Father, You have clearly told us what is good for mankind. You require us to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with You. When we fail, You see it all, El-Roi (the Strong One Who Sees).

We have confidence to enter boldly into the Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. Therefore, we take a stand against the corruption, lying, and stealing in this world and in Your church. It is not Your way or Your plan. Break the bonds that enslave these leaders to corruption, and may they find freedom in Jesus. ...

Honoring Women And Children In A World At War #14


I started to share these devotionals or readings from "Prayers for Crown Jewels" yesterday here which I found as a Bible Reading plan at You Version, however Karen Deits Carlson shares them also each day at the "Prayers for Crown Jewels" website, but it's #14 for today over there, the website corresponds to the day. The You Version link (YV) above goes to the current day reading, as will any daily link, the link is the same. Now that I understand this or know a little more of how this works, I've decided to read on "Prayers for Crown Jewels" website and so I skipped ahead from Day 2 on my YV plan, which I shared yesterday "Access to Scripture", which is #1 in Topics, to #14 

these are the scripture readings chosen
  • Jeremiah 46:11
  • Matthew 18:21-22
  • Hebrews 12:15
  • Matthew 5:44
  • John 14:26
  • Galatians 2:20
  • Lamentations 3:22-23

I just love the prayer given at "Prayers for Crown Jewels" and I hope you will join us today and pray this:

"Millions of women and children today need You, O Comforter, as they struggle to make it through the day. Unbelievable horrors have been levied against them, who are made in Your likeness, who are reflections of Your glory. Wrong after wrong, year after year, they have hung on by a thread. Multitudes do not know that You are the Balm of Gilead, the only One who can soothe, heal, and restore.

Jesus taught to forgive those who harm and shatter everything near and dear. Remind them how much You have forgiven them. You know the abuse each one has faced and/or is facing today. May Your Holy Spirit bring to mind any unconfessed sin or person to forgive. In faith these women and children will resist the roots of bitterness, rage, and hopelessness to be planted in their spirits. You stand ready to gather these precious souls into Your arms enabling them to forgive their enemies or their families for their part in this abuse.
Because of the enemy’s lies, some may even blame You. Many women have regrets over choices they made. Encourage them to forgive themselves. As each one reaches out in the power of the Holy Spirit to forgive, may You overwhelm them with peace and joy in their spirits. Only You can make that exchange. Use this in their lives to show others around them the difference of Christianity, which is Christ in them.
We acknowledge that Your loving-kindnesses and Your compassion never ceases or fails. They are new every morning. Even though many circumstances cloud that truth, we believe that Your faithfulness is great. It is hard to understand that these women and children are blessed because You will embrace them in a way most of us will never experience. "Karen D.Carlson

Please continue this
journey with me
"Honoring Women and Children ..."
either with
You Version or Karen's website

I feel today's prayer can be prayed for many of us!

If I do continue to link each day ... I will no longer be sharing the prayer but asking/hoping that you follow either the link to You Version or continue daily at "Prayers for Crown Jewels" HOME.

Honoring Women And Children In A World At War #1 and #2

"Tired of wringing your hands, shaking your head, or even giving up over the suffering in the world today? Our world is at war. Because millions of women and children have been tagged as disposable, forgotten, or hidden, they live under the radar. Just about anything can be done to them, and it is. However, scriptural prayer has the power to change lives in addressing issues affecting these precious ones!"

This reading plan at You Version was provided by
Karen Deits Carlson
Prayers for Crown Jewels


Day 1

"The conflict began with Eve. Satan knew her God-given nature was more trusting, more nurturing, and less aggressive than Adam’s. It was no mistake that he singled her out. He would do whatever it took to mar the image of the One he hated, the One who had all the best of femininity as well as masculinity. His tactics haven’t changed over the millennia.

Half of humanity is female. If that half is not honored and appreciated with purpose and dignity as created equally before God, then abuse, perversion, and hatred of women follows. Oppression and poverty trail after, affecting all in society: men, women, children, and the unborn. No period in history, including our own, is exempt from the horrors inflicted upon women and children. The current facts and figures of individuals made in the image of God within this prayer battle plan are staggering—defined in terms of millions and billions. We can close our eyes and ears to what is happening today. But with the advent of globalization, we will find it in our own backyard soon. Some already have.
Once made aware, we want to help, to be a part of the solution. But we don’t know how. If there was only a way….There is a way. We can confidently approach the very throne of God and stand as an advocate for these distressed women and children. Jesus said if we do anything for the least of our brethren, we do it unto Him. God is the only One who knows exactly what each one needs today; He is the only One who can give help that will last. It is to our loving heavenly Father that we must go.
One day we will stand before a holy God to give an account of how we spent the time He gave us here on earth. Will we take up in the power of the Spirit the armor He has given us to fight against the rulers, powers, and world and spiritual forces of this wicked darkness? Many of the victims caught in these dark webs do not even know the name of Jesus. What a responsibility and privilege we have to pray for them!
Jesus said He was the Light of the World. He commanded us to walk as children of the Light and not hide under a basket. Our prayers for the least of these are a fragrant offering unto Him.
One candle, one prayer, in the darkness can give light.
Thousands can drive the darkness away. "Karen Deits Carlson

I would love for you to
me in reading
either the
32 Day - You Version Reading Plan
Karen's mission/ministry website
{check out Daily Topics for stories and prayers}
better yet her book
by buying the book, you help support the ministry

Of course, I would love to share these daily here, but Karen has beautifully made 31 available on her site; and if I do like I did today and link, it only links to the plan, not to the day ... so I highly recommend doing this over at the website "Prayers for Crown Jewels" (each of the 31 have a title/topic over at the site - and since I started the plan, I cannot link to the days because it links to my own plan {I guess, unless I sign out, and try it but I don't remember my sign-in stuff, so I can't} so until later ... try either You Version or "Prayers for Crown Jewels"

My Day 2 at You Version
this one at
"Prayers for Crown Jewels"

"Access to Scripture"
{and the resources are incredible extra information}
it starts out like this

"Dear Heavenly Father, hundreds of millions in our world do not have even a portion of Your Word in their heart language." ...
to continue reading and praying this prayer
please follow the link

I really hope you do
these prayers
along with me
"Honoring Women And Children"

I'm so thankful for people like Karen, who do work like this. As you know that is the reason for my MISSION blog ... and my mission, given more specifically to me by God in 2007 after being here in Mexico since 1996 ... with a calling to what I thought would be just "children" yet God spoke clearly "women and children" in 2007 ... and even men ... because children grow up and many have not been nurtured or trained as they should have been, and loved as everyone deserves and IS by God and should be by us.

"Will You Open the Door?"

Loved | Valued | Purposed

I have been meaning to share this ministry here at MISSIONS ever since I chose "TREASURES" as my charity at Amazon, every time I make a purchase from Amazon, "Treasures" is suppose to receive a donation of 0.5% (but you have to be sure that you are not just signed in to your account but also signed in to smile (dot) amazon instead of just amazon (dot) com. and that's the part I forget to check and be sure. [Find out more about smile (dot) amazon here; "how do I get started" here and selecting one of so many charitable organizations or better yet check to see if one you know is listed for so many great causes, like dog rescues (or any pet/animal organization, health organizations or issues like Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Cancer, Heart ...and on and on... innumerable places need funding)]

But my point of this blog post is not Amazon ... that is why the initial question and link is to this organization because this article on their blog, is just one glimpse into their need ... since they have received notice that they had to move out of their building and relocate this ministry, which puts them in a bit of a predicament but also an opportunity to move to an ideal place closer to an area where there is greater need. 

Image result for open red front door

Please click over and read "Will You Open the Door?" {it's not that long} ... and while you're there maybe look around and pray where God might want to use you or perhaps help you become better aware of ministries of this nature that are so needed in the USA and what you can do... this link gives 11 ways you can help like PRAYING.   

I've waited far too long to share on this and I hope I will be able to share more soon because God re-assigned me to this MISSION in 2007
even when I was not trained for this
it is such a great need where I am as it is for
where they are located
Perhaps we can help
will you?
open the door to your heart
hear what God is speaking
to you too

Younger/Early Onset

"Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Younger-onset (also known as early-onset) Alzheimer's affects people younger than age 65.  Up to 5 percent of the more than 5 million Americans with Alzheimer’s have younger-onset. "

"Many people with early onset are in their 40s and 50s. They have families, careers or are even caregivers themselves when Alzheimer's disease strikes. In the United States, it is estimated that  200,000 people approximately have early onset." ... continue reading HERE
