Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you (Ephesians 4:29-32).
Lord, we ask that Your Spirit will reveal any areas of unforgiveness among your workers. We battle an enemy who uses relational wounds to divide us in our goal of seeing Your Kingdom expanded. We pray against unforgiveness between team members, but also against any event (a theft, injury, or some sort of violation) that may stir up feelings of discontent or even hatred toward a person or worse yet, a culture.
We praise you Lord for the growth of the church in Indonesia over the past 40 years. Thank you that the harsh extremism of Islamists has repelled many moderate Muslims. We are grateful that when the government mandated each citizen adhere to one of the five recognized religions, it encouraged many animists to consider the claims of the gospel. Lord, we thank you that the lives of committed Christians, prayer, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit have brought about fruit. We pray against ancient and powerful occult powers in the country and ask for continued growth of your Church. We also pray against the Islamization of Indonesia that has claimed the lives of many believers and seen hundreds of churches destroyed. Father, please continue to raise up godly leadership, effective teaching, and a growing global worker vision. Protect your Church. We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
