Prayer Points

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


  • Insight into the meaning of life is something that comes with regeneration. All of a sudden, a new transforming reality is part of one’s thinking. Hundreds of Erukula people have experienced this new way of thinking, of understanding the world. For them, Psalm 119:100 is being fulfilled. Here’s what that verse states: I understand more than the aged, Because I have observed Your precepts. As the Erukulan Christians grow in their faith, we should pray they will continue to follow/observe God’s precepts regarding morality, regarding how the world came into being, regarding how relationships between people ought to be conducted, and all the rest that comes with a full biblical reordering of the mind. May they (and we) stand firm in their Christian convictions regardless of what the world’s wisdom around them may say.
  • A perfect storm has hit Chad and Niger. Rebel fighting has resulted in hundreds of thousands of refugees. The flooding that continues to be present has displaced millions of acres of farms and families. Last year’s harvest was low because of reduced availability of fertilizer. Now, millions are facing a year where they do not know from whence their food will come. All this makes for conditions that will allow Christians wanting to help in this emergency be welcomed among the people. As Chadian and Niger Christians brings aid to those in need, they also will bring the food that endures to eternal life, that is, the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray for their wisdom and compassion and boldness in the Lord to result in life and eternal life for many. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things. (Isaiah 52:7/Romans 10:15)
