  • If God be for us, who can be against us? The Lord has promised to always make a way for His people. As we pray for the continued movement of the Holy Spirit among the Erukula people in India, we can give thanks that He will be with each one of them through thick and thin. Something dramatic has happened among the Erukula – many have become literate already and 150 more are in literacy classes right now. What that means is the treasure trove of biblical truth, assurances, and comfort is accessible to them. This week, let’s pray Psalm 119:50 will be experienced by them. This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your Word has revived me. May we receive the same reviving!
  • This week, in addition to praying for Christians in Chad and Niger as they reach out to unreached people groups, let’s also pray for Global Disciples Worship Specialist, Tim Bentch. Early last week Tim left for the Democratic Republic of Congo to conduct training sessions for worship leaders. He has asked us to pray for health, safety for himself as he travels and for the 8 worship leaders and 5staff who will take part in the training. Traveling can be difficult and dangerous in the DRC. Pray for safety and ease of travel for the participants.Pray that God will anoint each person and that the training will multiply especially to newly planted churches. Tim says it is wonderful to see local leaders raised up and commissioned to continue the work of training worship leaders.
