The International Day of Prayer and Action for Human Habitat

The International Day of Prayer and Action for Human Habitat, is observed on the third Sunday in September (September 17, 2007). It is a time when the entire Habitat for Humanity community is urged to come together in prayer for those in need of shelter. Through prayer, Habitat for Humanity continues to make a dramatic difference in the lives of people around the world. Many volunteers are drawn to this ministry after hearing God’s call and seeking God’s guidance through prayer.

The Day of Prayer was begun in 1983 to make housing a matter of conscience. The intent was to place in the hearts, minds and souls of people everywhere the idea that poverty housing is unacceptable. The New Testament passage from 1 John 3:17 teaches that we must respond to those in need. Prayers are answered when families and communities grow in the shelter of God’s grace. The hurdles of funding and building homes are overcome through the miracles of prayer.

The mission of Sea Island Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness West of the Ashley River and the surrounding sea islands, and to make decent housing a matter of conscience in our community.
