Prayer Points

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


  • Spiritual growth is always desirable, though not always easily experienced. The new Erukula believers who have come to faith in the past three years are in need of spiritual growth. Regeneration is the doorway to a Christian life that grows fuller and fuller, more informed, and more faithful year by year. A good verse that shows how such growth happens is Psalm 119:27. Make me understand the way of Your precepts, So I will meditate on Your wonders. As new believers begin to live as the Bible directs – often despite wondering how it will work out – they begin to see the wonder of God’s working. Let’s pray the Erukula believers will have many reasons to meditate on God’s wonders as they put biblical instruction into practice. May this wonder also continue to occur in our lives!
  • Praise the Lord for the rapid spread of the gospel via the first Global Disciples Directors Training in Mali, September 26-October 5, 2022. Pray for Global Disciples Facilitators from Niger and Chad as they lead, disciple, and train potential program directors who will return to train 10 to 15 disciples in each program who will reach out to least-reached people in their country. Pray that the Lord will give clear vision and direction as they discern the tribes they are called to reach. Mali has a population of 22,393,000 of which, 20,476,000 are unreached.Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; and that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. [2 Thess. 3:1-3]
