If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn. Mic. 5:12 I will destroy your witchcraft  and you will no longer cast spells.

Almighty God, I pray that all in authority would be generous and have compassionate hearts to see the need of the poor.  Please, Holy Spirit give them workable solutions to help them.

Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
