GOSPEL GLEANING PRAYER POINTERS
- It is a blessed thing to walk in the law of the Lord. That’s what we’re taught in Psalm 119:1. Here’s what it says: How blessed are those whose way is blameless, Who walk in the law of the Lord. As we pray each day for the 12 Church Planters who are ministering among the Erukula people, let’s pray they will experience the truth and blessedness of that verse. As those men go about from day to day, they will encounter all sorts of situations that demand what Oswald Chambers calls spontaneous moral originality. What Oswald means is learning how to walk in, that is, apply in the daily exigencies of life, the truths of the Bible. Of course, one must spend time reading the Word and putting it into one’s head and heart. Then, at the unexpected moment, the Holy Spirit tells how it applies in this particular moment. Let’s ask the Lord to bring this blessed reality to pass in the Church Planters – and in us!
- The next month will be crucial in Chad and Niger. Ramadan began last evening (April 2) at sundown. It continues through sundown on the evening of May 1. Because it is a holy time for Muslim peoples, it can be more difficult for Christians living among them. That is especially true for Christians who are seeking to share the Gospel with others, which is what the churches working with Global Disciples in those lands seek to do. As we pray daily for those churches, let’s pray for deep sensitivity on their part and on the part of the folk around them. As Muslims seek God during Ramadan, may they find the Lord Jesus. We can pray for the Holy Spirit to providentially connect seeking Muslims with ready-to-share Christians, thus bringing about the blessing of regeneration in the lives of many.
