______________ DAY 2 – RAISING CROSS-CULTURAL KIDS_____________

May the God of hope fill these ladies with all joy and peace as they trust in Him, so that they may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

Today we pray for attendees: Teresa, Stephanie, and Stacy

Raising TCK’s (third culture kids) is a complex endeavor at best. Parents’ desires are for each of them to have a personal belief/walk with God and that they grow into healthy (spiritual,ly emotionally, and physically) functional adults. Various cultures, transitions (hellos and goodbyes), schools, parents’ relationship and ministries, settings, and pace, all influence their search for identity, purpose, and sense of belonging. Please pour out Your spirit of wisdom, discernment, perseverance, love, grace, humor, patience, forgiveness, and provision as the parents influence these unique kids to become all that You desire them to be. It is definitely a faith journey for all involved.

We thank you Lord that the minuscule witness is growing in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Believers have gained credibility as the only ones to bridge the gulf between ethnic groups. We pray for the few believers and their witness in this war-torn land, amid a population uniquely receptive to the “good news”. We pray for those involved in aid, rehabilitation, outreach, and church-planting ministries to fully identify with the people and that through them a harvest may be won. We ask for effective networking to occur among the expatriates.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
