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.
Kampala – Uganda
Lockdown measures have been adjusted in Uganda. Most groups and gathering are still disallowed. However reduced restrictions on travel have helped many people begin to earn again. Please pray for families as they rebuild their income and get on their feet again. Pray also for our team as they help families to adjust to the changes and begin to support families off food aid and back on to earning an income.
We ask for your prayers for one lady in particular who is struggling to rebuild after lockdown contributed to her relapse into addictions. Please pray for reconnections with her family, a stable income and improved health for her.
Vaccinations – Please pray that Uganda receive and are able to administer more vaccines. At the moment their vaccination rates are still very low which makes the release of any lockdown risky.
Kisumu – Kenya
Coronavirus – Many smaller cities and rural locations have remained fairly Covid free so far but see to be seeing an increase in cases now. Where we work in Kisumu 19% of people have HIV. Research shows that HIV are twice as likely to die from Covid.
Reopening – With some restrictions lifted it has been possible to get some of our groups back together. Praise Jesus!
We are currently trying to raise funds for a much needed car for our team in Kenya. This would allow to team to work more efficiently and reach more people. At the moment our team walk for miles on foot each time they visit the communities as some families are very spread out. This would also allow us to bring some of the lonely elderly we meet to a central meeting place. We thank God for the generosity of some people that means we now have around a quarter of the money needed. Please pray for provision for the remaining balance.
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!
