Pray With Us to End Poverty

Jesus’ Economy is dedicated to ending poverty, and through our work in Bihar, India and our partnerships with fair trade artisans, we are making progress. But we need your help. Please pray with us as we continue to work.

Sometimes prayer can feel like a cop-out that takes away the need for action, but this simply isn’t true. Action is necessary, and there are many ways we can physically fight poverty, but let’s not negate prayer in the process of doing God’s will.

Poverty is not God’s plan for the people he created, and that means we should do all we can to end it. While donations and purchases at the Fair Trade Shop all work toward fighting poverty around the world, the power of prayer can too. So pray with us. Pray with us if you don’t have the ability to donate or buy. Pray with us, also, if you do have the ability to donate or buy, because your prayers are valued, too.

Pray that God will use us in Bihar, India. Pray that the artisans we partner with will be blessed. Pray for hope and for poverty to end.

Here are some other things to pray for:

  • Guidance, wisdom, and discernment for Jesus’ Economy’s volunteer executives, staff, and board of directors, as they execute the vision of Jesus’ Economy.
  • Entrepreneurs working on Jesus’ Economy fair trade products around the world—that their craft may be developed further and that God may use these efforts to create jobs and better the lives of others.
  • Our four sponsored church planters—that many people may hear the name of Jesus through their efforts. They are bringing the gospel where people have never heard the name of Jesus.
  • Communicating the vision of Jesus’ Economy to churches in the U.S., particularly in the current focus area of Washington state. May God open up hearts to the message and create opportunities for partnerships for God’s Kingdom.
  • Funds to come in the door, so that we may fully realize the vision of the Renew Bihar, India project; renewing hearts, homes, and hope by creating jobs, planting churches, and meeting basic needs.
  • Donations to come in the door to fund our founders' efforts, so that they can continue to serve Jesus' Economy full time. They are currently full-time volunteers but need funding to continue this effort long term.
  • Dollars to be donated toward our operations costs in the U.S., so that we can continue this great work for God’s Kingdom.

We believe that through prayer, anything can happen. God has provided a grand vision for Jesus’ Economy and we need to join in prayer to make it happen. Partner with us in prayer; let's watch God work together.
