“Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’… And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened…” —Luke 11:5-6 & 9-10
If a friend came knocking on your door in the middle of the night, would you give him three loaves of bread to share with his friends? Unlike the man in the Bible scripture who did not get up to give anything to his friend, the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) accepts individuals with open arms. They ask, and they shall receive. We don’t turn anyone away.
Regardless of the situations that brought the people to our doors, we are compassionate about helping them. It is through the powerful act of prayer that DRMM is able to provide for the individuals and families in need that come to our facilities. Additionally, it is through their prayers that they were able to find us. And it’s with your prayers that we can rebuild lives.
We provide for those in need 24/7, 365 days a year. DRMM is not just a place for individuals to come eat a meal and stay warm; it is also a place of worship and prayer. We pray that those struggling in our community are able to get back on their feet. It is not always easy to provide supportive services for 1,200 people per day, but with God on our side we are able to make it happen. The power of prayer should never be underestimated.
God has given me and others at DRMM the chance to be that friend that one calls on when he or she is in need. Through Him, prayers are answered and we are able to provide people with the necessities to survive through these rough economic times and the current frigid winter weather.
If you believe in the powerful act that is prayer, keep praying for DRMM. We believe that prayer is the number one tool for our success. And if you’re in need of spiritual nourishment, log on to our Web site at http://www.drmm.org to request prayer.
