Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, ‘Go in
peace; keep warm and well fed’, but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In
the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
(James 2:15-17 NIV)

Be The Answer Micro Grants Program, provides opportunities for individuals and partner
organizations in the Empowering Everyday Women Ministries, Inc. network to show their love for
those in need by taking action to donate critical funding to assist people whose lives are
adversely affected by chronic illness.

The program is based on James 2:15-17, which encourages Christians to show their love for
women and families in need by tending to their practical necessities.

The program micro-grants, of $100 to $500, are designed to provide crucial supplemental funds
to women and families experiencing job loss, inability to cover cost of prescription medicine, and
inability to pay medical bills, as a result of a protracted period of illness either to the woman or an
immediate family member.

As believers, we are called not only to sympathize with the pain of people in dire need, but to act.
While praying for people is an act of love, God has not only called us to prayer, but He’s called
us to be the answer to prayer as well.

We all need to feel and see the love of Christ, so let the deeds of your faith shine a light in
someone’s life. Let the love God has placed in you for all mankind manifest in acts of kindness,
so that people will know that someone truly cares, even if they can’t trace the help back to you.

Don’t simply confine the love of Christ to encouraging social media posts and silent prayers if you
have the means to do more. Partner with EEW’s Be The Answer Program and show God’s love in
a tangible way.

To love somebody, is to help somebody. By combining our resources we can “be the answer,” to
the prayers of hurting women and families right now.
