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!"

Introduction

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
JOIN
me in reading
either the
32 Day - You Version Reading Plan
Karen's mission/ministry website
{check out Daily Topics for stories and prayers}
or
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
was
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
PRAY
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.

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
