Today we pray for…

Attendees: Amy K., Emma P., Jessica, Lyndy, Sarah D., and Valerie-Gail

 

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:35, 37

 

Theologically, the attendees believe this. Many of their realities include these trials (each which encompass SO many emotions!), so we pray that by the power of Your Spirit, You give them a spirit of courage, strength, and healthy resilience to be the women You desire them to be. Guide them in wisdom and intentionality as they recognize the need for healthy boundaries, both in their personal and ministry lives. Through it all, increase their love for You. Give them an intimate assurance of Your steadfast love for them.

Father, please protect the women as they journey back home. May the truths absorbed go deep and take root to give timeless encouragement.

Father God, we thank You that in the 1990s there was fast growth of Evangelicals through newer churches in Cameroon. Many significant leaders who are professionals as well as, army, police and politicians have been converted – giving hope for changing society. However, Lord, You know that some claim Cameroon as one of the most corrupt nations on earth, so we pray for true Christians of integrity to be raised up. Nominal Christianity is a bigger problem in this land than in any other in Africa. Tribalism, pagan practices, alcoholism, and low moral standards are endemic. We pray for deep repentance, lasting deliverance, true revival, and a restoration of Bible reading, preaching, and holiness among believers. We ask that You raise up godly leaders well trained in Scripture.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
