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.
Please continue to pray for the nations as they deal with the spread and fear of coronavirus. Numbers of cases and deaths have been low but are now beginning to increase across East Africa. Please pray for prevention of disease spread and enough medical provisions to treat the sick.
Kampala – Uganda
Lockdown has had profound effects on the poorest families who have found themselves unable to earn and there are fears of protests and riots as they people face the choice between starvation and potential Covid-19. Pray for our teams as they support families over the phone and by providing money for food and essential hand-washing stations. Please also pray that sanitation training would be well received and help prevent any further spread.
We have recently set up a goat farm that will bring in income for our work in Uganda. Please pray that this project is successful and that God blesses the work of the farm.
Kisumu – Kenya
Many of our Life Group members are beginning to try and restart businesses using the savings they gathered during our Life Groups course. Please pray for blessing on these businesses and income for their families.
Please pray for our team as they safely support elderly widows and their families in the village. Our team are also working to support the teenagers in our kid’s club as the national statistics show that many young girls have become pregnant or been subject to domestic violence since the lockdown.
We thank God for the provision we have seen in this tough time. Please pray for our team as they continue to support our teams across the world in any way that they can.
