  • Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good. That’s the instruction we receive in Roman 12:9. In Psalm 97:10 we are told Hate evil you who love the Lord. It is easy for Christians to find sin attractive. That is as true for the Erukula believers as it is for us. This week as we pray for the Erukula people, let’s use Psalm 119:53 to inform our prayers: Burning indignation has seized me because of the wicked, who forsake Your law. May the minds and hearts of the Erukula Christians be so devoted to the Lord and His Word that sin is not attractive, but abhorrent. That is an effect of loving the Lord. May it be true in our lives as well.
  • Joyful praise is a hallmark of the Christian life. Believers in Niger and Chad need to experience and give expression to joyful praise in their individual lives and in their church life. As we pray for the ongoing outreach of Christians from Chad and Niger who are living among unreached people groups, let’s pray for the joy of the Lord to be their strength and that they will find appropriate ways to express it even in the midst of a culture that may be hostile to Christianity. We also should pray for Tim Bentch who has led worship training seminars in Rwanda and this week will be leading a worship seminar in Ethiopia. Those seminar are intended to help believers experience and express their love for God and thankfulness for all His blessings. The joy of the Lord is your strength. [Neh. 8:10]
