Prayer and Fasting for the Rosebud, Day 34

Friday is a traditional day for fasting.

If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery. Psalm 119:92

So the three mighty men broke through the Philistine lines, drew water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem and carried it back to David. But he refused to drink it; instead, he poured it out before the LORD. II Samuel 23:16

Let us pray for all Christians on the Rosebud Reservation. While we offer support from places of relative comfort, they lovingly and sacrificially minister on the battlefield.

Father, bless all Christian pastors, people and communities on the Rosebud Reservation. Let the cross of Christ stand over their families, homes, communities and churches to protect them from all evil. For the sake of Christ's shed blood and by the power of the Holy Spirit, let them share Christ's word and joy among their neighbors. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
