Today we pray for…

Volunteers: Connie K., Kathy, Carol Anne, Ronnie, Janet, Caitlyn, and Connie W. (pedicure)

 

How can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15

 

We ask a special blessing on Connie K., Kathy, Carol Anne, Ronnie, Janet, Caitlyn, and Connie W. as they come to do pedicures today—which are truly like spiritual foot washings—with color! We ask that they connect well with the women and are able to listen attentively while massaging feet and carefully painting toenails. Bless every encounter and be pleased with Your servants.

We thank You Father that Malawi continues to be the most spiritually-receptive country in central Africa. We pray that the nation may be led by leaders of integrity and that the new democracy may lead to the improved well-being of the people. The growth of Islam is a major challenge. AIDS is a terrible, but under-reported scourge. Life expectancy has been cut to 43, and there are up to 400,000 AIDS orphans. The health of the social community, the economy and even the state are threatened.  We pray that the church will maintain an effective ministry in the midst of deep poverty, and for training new workers for the spiritually weak rural churches – few can afford the training or the subsequent support. We ask for an adequate supply of quality reading material for the literate, growing, but poor church. We pray that churches might be equipped to help during these challenging times.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
