Prayer Points

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

  • The Holy Spirit is at work among the Erukula people in India. This marks the third year of directed evangelistic outreach among them. Many individuals and families have experienced the transforming power of the Gospel. Now there is living proof of what the Lord Jesus can do in someone’s life. That’s why there are 150 Erukula folk enrolled in the new Literacy Project. That’s why others are asking Erukula believers to explain how their lives have become so different. As all this is taking place, we can do our part by praying for the Holy Spirit to continue His work among the Erukula. Specifically, we might pray that Psalm 119:174 would be a reality in the lives of these Erukula seekers. I long for Your salvation, O Lord, And Your law is my delight. May God give the Erukula people (and the American people) such a longing.
  • Another training is taking place for which we need to pray. Just this past Friday the Global Disciples Training Director’s Training (GDTDT) in Chad began. It continues for ten days through August 29. Pray that each participant will encounter Jesus in a new way and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit to train others. The newly trained directors will return to their cluster of churches to initiate new training programs to send their own people to share the good news of Jesus among the least reached in Chad. The population of Chad is one of the most diverse in Africa with more than 100 languages and dialects spoken in the country. Official languages are Arabic and French. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. [Ephesians 6:19]
