November 2019 Prayer Guide




Isaiah 46

In this passage, God is speaking to Israel, and He has strong words to say:  “Beside me there is no other.” He shows the idols of the day to be wood that burns and metal that melts-of no value and powerless. He says this not to scold us but rather to remove the fog of our self-worry or concern or even self-reliance.

If we want to understand what is at the core of God’s heart for us and the children Cure serves, listen to these words from Isaiah:

“Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob,
all the remnant of the people of Israel,
you whom I have upheld since your birth,
and have carried since you were born.
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” ‭‭ Isaiah‬ ‭46:3-4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Are these not beautiful words? Let’s believe Him as we pray.
