Prayer Points

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

  • Dealing with afflictions is a challenge for every Christian. We wonder we God doesn’t help us out more. We know that all things are under His control, so why does he allow us to go through tough times? The Erukula Christians and the 12 Church Planters working in their midst face similar questions. Hence, this week let’s use Psalm 119:75 as a resource as we intercede for them. I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. Having the attitude reflected in this verse is a big step toward Christian maturity. May the Erukula people and the Leidy’s Church people be encouraged by this truth.
  • Christians in Chad and Niger are on the frontier of faith. They are surrounded by other religions, both Islam and many forms of animist and native faiths. The Gospel of Jesus is new and foreign to them. Hence, Christians in Chad and Niger are in some ways like the earliest Christians who spread the faith throughout the Jewish and Gentile worlds in the first century. The proclamations of those first Christians were often accompanied by signs and wonders to confirm the veracity of their message. This week, let’s pray that the Holy Spirit would validate the Gospel message of the Chad and Niger Christians with signs and wonders as they seek to take the message of light to those sitting in great darkness.
