Lord, You own the cattle on a thousand hills. In You are riches beyond our wildest dreams and imaginations. Everything was made by You, for You, and they are held together by You to this day. You have told us not to fear, because You are with us. You have told us to seek first Your kingdom rather than the things of this world. We have seen the effects of poverty in our own area and in areas around the world. Poverty leads us to desperation and often to despair. Poverty gives the enemy an open window to speak lies into our ears that go down to our innermost parts. Father, I thank You for the light that You have provided by which we can see the truth. I thank You for making Yourself available to us. I pray that You would extend the blessing of Your truth those suffering from poverty in Bangladesh. I pray that Your light would penetrate the darkness around them and that Your love would permeate the shroud of fear and uncertainty in which they live. I pray that their desperation would be redirected towards You, that they would turn their financial poverty into poverty of Spirit so that they may receive Your kingdom. I pray that You would turn their physical hunger and parchedness into a hunger and a thirst for righteousness. I pray that You would give them enough to live by so that they do not steal and dishonor You. I pray most of all that they would find You and that they would turn their hearts, their lives over to You in full surrender and fall in love with You, their great provider. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
