Word of the day: 17 He will listen to the prayers of the destitute. He will not reject their pleas. Psalm 102:17 NLT

Meditate: Pray over destitute.

Discussion Board: Let’s talk about destitute. The meaning without the necessities of life. What are the needs of life? Dave Ramsey likes to call this the four walls. Food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. The Psalmist is writing to everyone telling us that God listens to the prayers of our needs. No food? Pray about it. No shelter? Pray. No clothing? Pray. Are you struggling to get transportation? Pray. The needs of our life are important to God. If you read the parables in the Bible, you will realize that most people that struggled with their needs of life, God answered through prayer. Job lost everything. It is still a mystery to why he lost everything, but God eventually gave back to Job. The government may reject your needs, but God always finds a community of people who will lend a hand to help. What is your role? The answer is to pray.

Prayer: Father, someone is struggling. They need you faster than we can pray. I pray that the people that are struggling to get needs. Give them blessings with their needs. There are people in life living in greed, while others are having a hard time. I pray for your connections to others that can help. Thank you for all you do. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
