Today we pray for Protection

Attendees: Deborah and Sarah 

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:1-4

Dear Heavenly Father,

There are many reasons our attendees need Your protection. Thank You that there is no disease, war, trauma, disaster or challenge that is too big, too hard for You. Thank for never leaving us alone to face these dangers. Thank You for walking through the valley of the shadow of death with us. Thank You for sheltering us under Your wings and holding us in Your hands. You are great and mighty and our confidence is in You.

So, we ask with faith believing for Your strength and protection from the many dangers that lurk in our world. We ask for more faith to believe and not be afraid. We place the Global Women in Your hands with trust and hope, knowing You love them more than we can imagine and You’ve got them.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Challenges for Prayer

Christian support ministries for prayer:

  1. a) Bible translation. Praiseworthy progress has been made, but many needs remain – only three languages have the whole Bible. The Bible in Solomons Pijin (the most widely used language) was completed in 2008. The NT was recently completed in Wala, Bughotu and Natugu. National believers are taking the initiative, and this long-underestimated ministry now receives the attention it deserves. Pray for the 19 translation projects shared by WBT, UBS and local believers; 28 more languages may still need translations. Pray also for the Solomon Islands Translation Advisory Group (SITAG), which coordinates Bible translation and for the Solomon Islands Bible Translation and Literacy Partnership (SIBTLP), the fellowship of Solomon Islander translators.
