Every morning at our bases around the world our teams gather to spend time in the presence of God; to meditate on his word, to worship and pray. We do this knowing that as George Müller said, “The point is this: I saw more clearly than ever that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was, to have my soul happy in the Lord.” Only from this place are we refreshed and prepared for the day ahead and all it may hold.
In our times of prayer we thank God for his faithfulness and for all that we see him doing week by week. We pray for each other and intercede for situations in the places we are working worldwide. We have seen the power of prayer over many years and never underestimate the Holy Spirit’s transforming power in every situation.
We’d love it if you would join us.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Ephesians 6:18
Presence – Protection – Provision
The foundational prayer points that we find ourselves returning to again and again.
Numbers of cases across East Africa are still far less than were feared. Praise God with us that we haven’t seen the devastation that was predicted in the slum communities. We pray that this will remain the case.
Many schools have only just returned in Uganda and Kenya for the first time in 9 months. Please pray for children who, in most cases, have missed a whole year of education and are re-sitting the year.
Kampala – Uganda
The Uganda election period spans from mid January to early February with the election itself on the 14th Jan. After violent protests back in November things have been fairly calm. Please pray for a peaceful and fair election. Please pray with us for those in the poorer communities who are often most affected by rioting.
A couple on our team are beginning to offer more marriage support to couples in the slums. Please pray that they would have wisdom to tackle broken marriages, domestic abuse and other issues. We thank God for the families he has turned around so far and we pray that he will continue to bless this work.
Kisumu – Kenya
Our Life Group members are now a month or two into their new business which are going well. Praise God for empowering these ladies to feed their families.
Please pray for our new team member, Agnes, who has recently joined the team after volunteering with us. We thank God for bringing her along at the right time.
We’re so thankful for God’s faithfulness and provision through an extremely challenging year and to all who have supported us, with their time, money and many many prayers. We would not be where we are today without you. Praise the Lord!
Having moved our office back into the centre of Aylesbury, we are excited to see what God will have us do in the town and we look forward to the year ahead with expectation. Please pray that God would guide our steps as we begin to explore what our work could look like in the UK.
