Some of the needs I'll be lifting up today:

The devastating earthquake in China - many killed and wounded.

The destruction caused by Hurricane Gustav.

Joy and her family on the recent loss of her mother.

My friend Lillian as she and her family as they prepare to move to England

The unknown young lady who's living in a hotel with her children, with no clear plans for the future right now.

I think what struck me as I penned this list - is that some instances are small, while others blanket huge amounts of people and places - even so, my prayer is the same for both. Can the prayer for the crowds compare to the prayer of just one need? According to God - it can:

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny ?
Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.

Matthew 10:29

So don't be afraid;
you are worth more than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:31

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies ?
Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.

Luke 12:6

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Luke 12:7
