Prompts to Help You Pray

Learn more in our Dawn Treader Magazine

This prayer  is a petition rooted in thanksgiving. We request God’s guidance in doing His Will by doing good to others, in gratitude for what He has already done, and will do, for us.


Dear God,
Thank you for giving us all that we possess.
Help me to remember that it is
my duty to use your gifts to honor You

And to love my neighbor as myself.
Give me wisdom to know where
and when I may best help,

And please bless all those whom I cannot help,
as I release them to your core.
I pray for the hurting, the poor and homeless,
the friendless, and the oppressed.

Help me to remember and recognize all those in need,
And give me grace to love and give.
In Jesus’ Name,
