Prayer Points

Please pray for those within our church family who are sick and suffering.

  • The third year of outreach ministry to the Erukula people is underway. That means a new literacy program is running full speed ahead. Two hours a night, five days a week, 150 Erukula folk are learning how to read, write, and do basic math functions. They’re also learning a lot about hygiene, interpersonal communications, family relations, and other fundamental areas of life. All this teaching is done using the Bible and Bible-based curricula. Our prayer is that foremost among all the things learned or experienced will be the reality of new life through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. In that regard, it might be good to use Psalm 119:175 as a reality to be sought for each individual in the literacy program. Here’s what it says: Let my soul live that it may praise You, And let Your ordinances help me.
  • Give thanks for significant peace developments in Chad amongst warring tribes and rebel groups. More than 30 rebel and opposition factions signed a peace pact on August 8. Pray that peace will continue, thus allowing Christ-followers to share the good news of Jesus more freely and with safety. Pray for the eight Program Directors who will be equipped in the upcoming Global Discipleship Training August 19-29. Pray that God’s calling for each one will be strengthened as they prepare for and lead local Global Discipleship Training Programs in the coming months followed by outreach to unreached areas of Chad. The Lord’s justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. [Isaiah 32:16-18]
