Today we pray for…
Attendees: Danielle and April
My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him (Psalm 62:5).
Like believing moms everywhere our attendees’ heart cry is that their children have an intimate, personal walk with the Lord. Raising kids on the field in some ways is no different than those in the States and in numerous ways, quite unique. Second guessing one’s call when children struggle with identity, friends, and cultural adjustment is not uncommon. Lord we lift up those at the retreat who are experiencing tension and difficult decisions concerning their children. Raising teens carries its own challenges, in addition to living overseas, the complications can be many. May they sense your wisdom, peace, and grace as they journey through the various family challenges.
Father God, You know the Congo needs peace and a government that seeks the welfare of the people. Two decades of Communist dictatorship followed by a fragile, failing democracy and civil war have devastated the land. We pray for national reconciliation; bring repentance and conversion to those who wreaked violence in the years of fighting. We pray for new life, vision, and trust in God for the believers and also ask that committed Christians be appointed to positions of national leadership. Many church leaders have left the country. We pray for the return of those best able to help the churches recover, recommence abandoned ministries, and once more tackle the evangelization of every part of the country. We pray for the full restoration of the ministry of the three Bible schools. All this we pray…
in Jesus’ name, Amen.
