Prayer Points

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

  • Church planting isn’t easy, particularly in India, and particularly when it’s among unreached people that the churches are being planted. Opposition arises on every hand. It can run the gamut from stony silence to challenging arguments to hostile actions to outright physical persecution. Hence, a good prayer for our 12 Church Planters working among the Erukula unreached people group is Psalm 119:98. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For they are ever mine. Let’s ask God to help the Church Planters rely on His Word as they deal with opposition that may arise. May He give them that pertinent insight in each situation that arise. May they know He is ever with them and will make them competent in every situation.
  • 1.7 million people are facing emergency levels of food shortages in the Chad and Niger part of Africa according to a recently released UN study. Starvation looms large among many families. It is into just those situations that some of the Christian folk trained by Global Disciples will be taking the Bread of Life as well as bread to eat. Pray for God to lead them to the right situations, and that He would protect them as they reach out in Jesus’ name. Pray the people will have bread to eat and Bread to live by.
