Pray Daily - December 13, 2017

 

 

Scripture

The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 HCSB)
 

 

World Leader

"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence" (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Please pray for Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany.
 

 

Deaf Peoples

Polly Jorgen* shares: "There is a story about a servant who went to work in the field. As he was plowing the ground, there was a big object in the planting row. To the servant's surprise, he discovered a treasure chest of great value. The servant reburied the treasure and ran to his house and sold all of his possessions. After he purchased the ranch, the servant returned to the field and brought the treasure home with great delight. He had obtained the treasure of great value." This story is one that Polly has recently been contemplating. She sees an eagerness among some Deaf friends in East Asia who desire to know more about God, he who is the treasure of great value. Others don't seem as eager to want to learn more about this treasure of great value. They almost seem content with where they are. When sharing stories among Deaf friends, there is a great struggle in knowing when to encourage, when to challenge, when allow time to take its course, or a combination of all of the above. Polly asks: "Pray that we all will continue to seek and desire to obtain the treasure of great value. Everything that we have is considered insufficient and inadequate. Ask that we will choose to be delighted in him." (*name changed)
 

 

Osaka, Japan

(OH-sah-kah) - "It has been said that for English speakers, the Japanese language is the hardest language in the world to learn. Unlike English and Spanish, there are just no similarities between English and Japanese, making it quite the challenge for missionaries to become proficient enough to share deep spiritual truths in the heart language of the people of Japan. By December, our Osaka City Team will have five adults studying the language, and our very valued, long-term Japanese language teacher will be retiring. Please pray for this period of transition, and ask that all of our personnel will be successful in reaching language proficiency. Pray that our retiring language teacher will be blessed for his many years of faithful service to our mission. Pray also for our new Japanese teacher in Osaka."
 

 

Theological Education for the Western Gateway Cluster (West Africa)

"West Africans often share insights by telling a story, recounting a tale, or speaking a parable or proverb that only those who are familiar enough with the culture can understand or glean truth from. Today, we are asking you to approach God's throne to pray for discernment and wisdom for those who are teaching West Africans to discover God's truths and insights and to follow the righteous path."
 

 

People of Factory Belt, China

At first glance, families in Factory Belt appear to be very close-knit, but many families are not what they seem. Not long ago, a sister in Christ sat down with a believing couple in "Gateway City" and shared her story with them. She recently found out that her husband is heavily involved in gambling, is in debt for an amount more than the value of their home, and has a second family that she did not know about. Within a couple of days, it was verified that her husband even has a 3-year-old son with his second wife. This was not the first time that the believing couple had heard a story like this from a fellow believer. Families in Factory Belt need the saving power of Jesus! Some of them are searching for answers about how to parent or how to have a better marriage, but they are closed to the good news. Without the gospel, there is no true hope for them! Pray that Sue* will be given the incredible strength needed to make it through all the financial situations that she will face in court, and ask the Father to comfort her as she deals with continual bad news about her husband's decisions. Pray that God will raise up mature believers who have a heart to minister to families in "Gateway City" and other cities in the Factory Belt area. Most importantly, ask that these families will open their hearts to Jesus! (*name changed)
 

 

Lima, Peru

(LEE-muh) - Pray that Christmas services will not be about Baby Jesus, but rather, our need for a Savior and God's mercy. Pray that Jesus will no longer be "just a story," but the Lord of Peruvian hearts. Pray for mentors and disciple makers committed to teaching new believers to obey all that he has commanded.
 

 

Palestinian Arabs of the Middle East

(pal-uh-STIN-ee-uhn) - Amir* is a young Palestinian Arab who grew up in a Muslim family but became a follower of Jesus. When a believing friend inquired about how he had heard the good news, Amir said that no one had told him; Jesus had spoken to him in a dream. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, Amir became a believer. His family rejected him, and he lived in isolation for a long time. Eventually, Amir's family pressured him into marrying a young woman who was a Muslim. Months later, Amir invited his believing friend to visit their home. The friend was surprised to learn that Amir's wife had also come to follow Jesus and that they were studying the Scriptures together. Pray for this couple's faith to grow in the midst of opposition and rejection. Pray that their family members will seek and find the peace of Jesus that they see in Amir's life. (*name changed)
 

 

Rumelian Turks of the Balkans

(ru-ME-lee-an) - Please lift up a special December outreach. A group of visiting believers will be sharing the "True Meaning of Christmas" at various locations where the Rumelian Turks are in the majority. In addition, gift bags will be handed out to children and teachers. It's hoped that gospel-centered materials can be included in these bags. Pray that hearts will be prepared to receive these gifts of love and that seeds of hope will be planted in the hearts of the children and teachers who receive them.
 

 

Northern African and Middle Eastern Peoples

Thank the Lord for opening the doors for a man to travel frequently to Europe to work on a translation of the Old Testament in the heart language of a Berber people, in answer to your prayers! Pray for safety for him and his family while he is away. Ask that the resulting work will be accurate yet readable and understandable to those who speak his language.
 

 

Haitian Peoples of Haiti

(HAY-shun) - Available pastoral training programs offer academic degrees and certificates, but the need for day-to-day, practical pastoral care and life skills is often overlooked. Pray for missionary Mark Rutledge and the leadership of Cofraternite Missionaire Baptiste d'Haiti (CMBH) as they evaluate the available training and prepare additional training to better meet the needs of leaders in the churches.
 

 

Thai-Khorat of Thailand

(tie-koh-RAHT) - Ama* was ready to share during the sharing time at Garden of Eden Church. She read a prayer from a booklet she had, with her magnifying glass in one hand and the booklet in the other. When it was time to read the Bible, her brought out her magnifying glass again. In her eighties, Ama is an avid reader of God's Word. Her grandson had lived with the leaders of Garden of Eden Church for a couple of years when his father had gone to work in another city. The leaders lavished love on the grandson, caring for him just like their own grandson, Malk*. Ama came to believe in God when she saw, through the lives of the leaders at Garden of Eden Church, that he is real. Pray for Ama to continue to grow in her faith and to lead others to Jesus. (*names changed)
 

 

Dakar, Senegal

(dah-KAR) - In November, millions of Mouride Muslims (a Sufi sect of mostly Senegalese followers) traveled to Touba, Senegal, for their annual worship celebration, Magal Touba. The magal is in obedience to the request of Cheikh Amadou Bamba, the founder of the Mourides, that the date of his exile in 1895 by the French to Gabon be remembered. During the magal, Mouride pilgrims visit the Great Mosque of Touba and the mausoleum of Cheikh Amadou Bamba. Believing that the mausoleum is infused with spiritual power, pilgrims may pray, touching the walls of the mausoleum, and some may drop coins inside a fenced area that encircles the tomb. Cheikh Amadou Bamba taught that salvation comes through complete submission to God and hard work. Thus, most Mourides are zealous in their religion, attempting to gain salvation through complete obedience to God. Yet the sin problem remains, and they are powerless against the forces of evil. The religious and social barriers to their believing in Jesus are extremely high. Pray that the Holy Spirit will give the Mourides ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart to know the one true and living Savior, Jesus Christ, who has borne our sins upon himself who had no sin, who has authority to forgive, and who has offered forgiveness by the grace of God through faith in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
 

 

Sub-Saharan African Peoples

Missionaries serving in southern Africa write: "As the year winds down and we start our version of summer vacation (it's summer in the Southern Hemisphere), there are massive opportunities to present the gospel to families and friends and the new friends we will make. Most people who reside in one of the cities where we serve will leave for a beach trip or some other form of vacation. Many others will go to visit their families in the rural areas. The pace of life becomes very slow, and there are many people with whom one can relax. This is a great environment for the gospel! It's very easy to share one's story and God's story in these situations. In order for this to happen, we have several prayer requests to share with you: Please pray that many of the believers can be trained to share their story (testimony) and God's story. Pray that they will be led by the Spirit into conversations that will easily and naturally lead to a gospel presentation. Ask that they will be bold and courageously present the gospel and call for a response. Finally, please pray for the discipleship that will need to begin very quickly."
 

 

Chittagong Muslims of Bangladesh

(chit-TAH-gong) - This year has been simply amazing, and one of the reasons for that is because you have prayed for believers who are seeking to share the gospel. Due to your prayers and support, Bangladeshi people have heard the good news, accepted it, and been baptized. As 2018 approaches, please continue to pray for the believers, and most of all, pray that God will move mightily in Chittagong, Bangladesh.
 

 

Mumbai, India

(moom-BYE) - Hundreds of "B" Muslims from Mumbai gathered together outside the international airport. Their leader was returning from the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia), and they were there to welcome him home. The "B" Muslims represent only a small portion of the 17 percent of the population of Mumbai that is Muslim. While Islam is a minority faith, more than 3 million Muslims live in this city. Some local believers have a heart to reach the Muslims, but many believe that these people will never turn from their traditional beliefs; therefore, the majority of "B" Muslims remain unengaged with the gospel. Pray to the Lord of the harvest to call out local believers to bring the good news to the "B" Muslims. Ask God to tear down the barriers of fear and faithlessness so that the "B" Muslims may hear and believe. Pray for a powerful movement of the Holy Spirit within this city that will touch the lives of "B" Muslims all over South Asia.
 

 

Swazi of Swaziland

(SWAH-zee) - In August, a group of Kentucky Woman's Missionary Union women provided an "Africanized" WMU training event for the members of the Swazi Baptist Women's Council. Six women attended this training. Each Swazi Baptist church was given a WMU manual (a siSwati-language translation) and women were encouraged to organize. Reports from the field have been very encouraging. Those trained have been training women in Swazi Baptist churches in their perspective regions. One trainer shared that not only is her church using the WMU material, but the women are also inviting other women in their community to come and join them! Pray that the Swazi Baptist churches will use the WMU as an effective tool in reaching communities for Jesus.
 

 

East Asian Peoples

Praise the Lord for orchestrating all that it takes to make his name known among the 1.67 billion East Asians! As East Asians become more and more prosperous, pray that God will open their eyes to the fleetingness of earthly possessions. As their eyes are opened, pray that the 1.3 billion East Asians who are still lost will begin to seek God, responding to the eternity that he has already planted in their hearts.
 

 

Belgian Nationals of Belgium

"Throughout all of Europe during the Christmas season," writes Team Belgium, "booths, tents, and little log cabins are set up in local town squares to sell candies, chocolates, warm cider, and toys in celebration of Christmas. People flock to these Christmas markets in droves in order to enjoy a little bit of Christmas cheer during the cold, rainy season of winter. These markets are filled with joy and with good food, but what they often lack is any mention of Christ, God's Son who was born a babe and for whom we celebrate this season. Despite the selling of charming nativity scenes, Christ is forgotten. Pray that in Flanders and Wallonia, Belgium, our team will have the opportunity to share our love for Jesus during this season of thanks! Pray that we will be able to educate children and adults about the true meaning of Christmas, a holiday celebrated for hundreds of years in Europe that has now lost its meaning. Pray that this story will resonate with the Belgians and that they will want to learn more about the God-Man, Jesus."

Pray Daily - December 8, 2017

 

 

Scripture

She will give birth to a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins. (Mathew 1:21 HCSB)
 

 

World Leader

"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence" (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Please pray for Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet of Gabon (western equatorial Africa).
 

 

Thailand

Thailand is still grieving the loss of her beloved king, the king of the people. October marked the one-year anniversary of his death and the end of formal grieving as a nation. Please pray for the people of Thailand as they continue to grieve and process all that this means. Pray for those who are governing to lead the people in justice, fairness, and freedom. Ask the Lord to do a mighty work in this country. Pray that people will come to know that he is real and that eternal life is to "know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent" (John 17:3 NIV).
 

 

South Asians in the United Kingdom

Please be in prayer for a fellowship of Bengali believers that meets in the United Kingdom. Over the past few months, one of the fellowship leaders has become dissatisfied with the level of involvement of each of the members. He feels frustrated that they only seem to care about their jobs and wealth. He wants them to truly crave the living water. When asked if they had ever been discipled, his response was, at first, a bunch of excuses as to why that had never happened. Over the course of the hour-long conversation, however, he began to understand the importance of discipleship and the role it plays in an individual's personal relationship with Christ and how that, in turn, affects their desire to share with others. Please pray that as this fellowship leader seeks to implement discipleship as a normal practice, he will have clarity about how that should happen. Pray that all the members of the fellowship will desire to have a deeper relationship with Christ and that they will become a beacon to the world around them. This particular fellowship faces persecution on a regular basis. Pray that this Christmas season, the community around them will see their love of Christ and, instead of trying to destroy the work of this fellowship, they will join it.
 

 

Muslims of Nairobi, Kenya

(nigh-ROH-bee) - Pray for the new believers in "Kigura," a Nairobi slum that is home to thousands of Muslims. There are several new believers in this community that Kenyan partners are trying to bring together so they can teach them about church and the importance of meeting together to worship Jesus. Ask the Father to continue working in the hearts of the new believers and to give them a desire to learn more and more about Jesus and how to follow him in the midst of persecution, post-election violence, and cultural barriers. (*name changed)
 

 

American Peoples

"'I want to work with y'all.' These words were spoken by an Arhuacan believer named Jim.* He and other indigenous Christians recently attended a gathering in Bogota, Colombia, of Christian leaders from 30 different tribes in which they discussed the importance of working together for the spreading of the gospel among all the indigenous communities in Colombia. After returning from this gathering, Jim informed us that he is ready to get to work! Please pray that the Holy Spirit will guide Jim and other Christian indigenous leaders in their plans to take the light of Christ to the indigenous communities that are living in spiritual darkness. Ask God to fill these indigenous believers with courage as they endure heavy opposition and persecution from both political and spiritual leaders in their communities. Pray for God to increase the work of the Holy Spirit among the indigenous communities, causing a deep hunger and thirst for the gospel." (*name changed)
 

 

French Nationals of France

Food is very important in France. One could say that the French are even eccentric when it comes to mealtimes. They find pleasure in each course--and there are many--and a meal can be more of a work of art, requiring hours of time, instead of a time of physical sustenance. One Baptist representative and his wife have lived in France and have learned what all of this means to the average person in that country. He understands the need for physical sustenance. Through this, he has also seen the need for spiritual sustenance that each person craves, whether they are aware of it or not. He is now leading and teaching on creative prayer through workshops and "Prayer Tastings." Please pray for him and his wife as they travel to various locations to teach and share. Pray that many will hear about how they can have their spiritual cravings fulfilled through Jesus.
 

 

Jula of Cote d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Mali

(JOO-luh) - The village of Komara, Burkina Faso, will have its first-ever baptismal service on December 10! Pray for the handful of believers who will be baptized to be bold witnesses to the rest of the village about the vivid display of turning away and putting to death their sins and turning toward Jesus and the eternal life that he gives.
 

 

Sub-Saharan African Peoples

"When most people think of Africa, they see in their mind's eye villages with huts, women with packages on their heads and babies on their backs, and men farming or herding cattle. This is all accurate, but did you know that there are several major cities across Sub-Saharan Africa that are home to people from all over the world? These are people who perhaps cannot be reached in their home countries but who can be reached with the good news of Jesus right here in Africa. Please pray for a group of Chinese who are meeting to study the Bible in our city. Ask that this group will learn and grow in a healthy way and that workers here who are unexpectedly finding themselves working with non-African cultures will have the wisdom and help that only God can provide. Pray that many people will come to faith and, in turn, bring many others to Jesus."
 

 

Northern African and Middle Eastern Peoples

There is a new group of believing refugees who are meeting together! Lift up the leaders of the group, asking that they will be faithful to the Father's calling. There is also a group of believing women who are meeting weekly to study the Word. Several are pregnant or have newborns. Ask for them to adjust quickly to life with new babies, and pray that this next generation will grow up knowing Jesus and that new legacies will be established for the kingdom through them!
 

 

People of the SWAN Area, East Asia

"Please pray for the entire SWAN area and particularly for the church leaders and college students. The Father is moving among these two groups of people and revealing unique ways to share with them about his gift and to train them up in his service. Please ask for his guidance on the work here, and pray for wisdom in knowing which leaders to work with (there are so many!) and which colleges in which to invest time. 'The harvest is great, but the workers are few' (Matthew 9:27 NLT)."
 

 

Urban Indigenous Peoples of Brazil

In a city in Brazil, there are more than 3,000 members of an indigenous group who have come from the northwestern part of the country. Among them are only 30 or so possible believers. Members of a second indigenous group are also present in the city, but so far, very little information is available about them. Both groups are classified as "unreached" with the gospel. The indigenous peoples living in the city have escaped the harsh conditions of the desert-like landscape of their home villages. They have experienced many years of drought and have moved to the city in hopes of finding work and better lives. Please pray for the salvation of the urban indigenous peoples.
 

 

Japan

On the East Asian Peoples Day of Prayer and Fasting, held on the second Monday of each month, please join the missionaries of Japan in also praying and fasting for the spiritually needy cities of Japan. This month's focus is on Kobe. Nestled between mountains and ocean lies the city of Kobe. With a population of more than 1.6 million people, it is the sixth-largest city in Japan. Kobe is thought of as a city of wealth and success. Recently, however, missionaries in Kobe have seen an increase in people searching for something more. Pray for the two house churches in Kobe that are continually worshipping the Lord diligently. Ask God to use these house church groups to lead many nonbelievers to believe in Jesus as their Savior.
 

 

South Asian Peoples

Praise God for fruitful laborers in villages in a state in central India! Nine years ago, believers from a large city in this state took the gospel to a certain village, and a 9-year-old boy named Ramesh* was saved. Ramesh was discipled through chronological Bible studies using SD cards in the home. Nine years later, he is a faithful gospel spreader and church planter, and this year alone, he planted nine churches! Please pray for Ramesh to be encouraged in his faith and strengthened in his labor. Pray for these churches to continue spreading the gospel to those around them who have never heard, and pray for more and more churches to be planted throughout this state. (*name changed)
 

 

Peoples of Northern Zambia

During the time that the missionaries are away, there have been many people who have sent them encouraging texts and emails. They write: "We are so thankful for modern technology so we can keep up with the churches in the Kaputa District! We have heard of new people moving to Kaputa and visiting the church. The work the churches are doing and the continuing efforts to plant more churches make us very excited, and we are praising God for his work that is continuing. It just show us that he is in control! Pray that the churches will continue to be strong in the Lord. Ask that they will be committed to planting these new churches and that God will lead them."
 

 

Arab Peoples of Central United Kingdom

Imagine for a moment that you are a young man. You have two choices in life: Fight for an extremist group or fight for the opposition. There are no other options, no jobs, and no amount of education that will help you escape your fate. There is no food for your family. You join the opposition, but your best friend is urged by his family to join the extremist group. Now your lifelong friend is your enemy. After witnessing numerous atrocities, you are unable to sleep at night, and the promises of the opposition party have worn thin. Your family helps you to escape to Europe, where there's a slight chance that asylum will be granted to you and that maybe one day, your family will be reunited. It's a better choice than dying for something you don't believe in. In the United Kingdom, you're met with unfamiliar customs and practices. You're learning English, but it takes time and humility to learn to speak even like a child. Your future hopes and dreams seem very far away and almost unobtainable. Loneliness is heavy on your heart. You miss your family and the life of peace from your memories. You're lost in this world and have no hope. Currently, there are an estimated 117,000 refugees living in the U.K., all of whom have a story. Pray that they will encounter God in their journey. Pray that fellow believers will help guide them to finding peace in the holy name of Jesus.
 

 

Uzbeks of Post-Soviet Central Asia

(OOZ-beks) - Please pray for Dee*, who recently heard the gospel but then moved to another Central Asian country to work. Her heart is open, so please ask the Father to reveal the truth to her and to put other believers across her path who will share and live out the truth in front of her. (*name changed)
 

 

Hong Kong and Macau, China

(ma-COW) - In March, you were asked to pray for Kara*, a young doctor involved in residency training at Hope Medical Group who had accepted Christ last year. She had shared with a visitor that the reason we need to know God is that we all have a hole in our hearts that only God can fill. Praise God that in answer to your prayers, Kara has grown rapidly in her medical and spiritual training at Hope! She is leaving now to join a government medical internship program for one year. Many graduates of Hope's residency training program are now working in the government healthcare system. Please pray that Kara and others will be salt and light in the medical environment and will be a witness to their patients. Pray also for Hope Clinic's transition to national administration in 2018. Pray for board members, doctors, and staff to have wisdom in bringing health and the good news to this community and beyond. (*name changed)
 

 

Khmer of Cambodia

(kuh-MER) - Praise the Father for his faithfulness in upholding a village family who wishes to follow him wholeheartedly! This family just celebrated the birth of a child. The blessed arrival is the great granddaughter of a widow who became a believer a few years ago. When she accepted Christ, she discarded all objects used for ancestral worship and animistic rituals and stopped going to the local temple. The community watched very closely to see if curses would fall upon her household, and several close friends cut off ties with her family as a sign of protest toward her betrayal of their cultural heritage. But God has comforted and blessed this simple family of rice farmers by providing joy, peace, an abundant rice crop, and a flourishing vegetable garden. They've never lacked for what they've needed. Many still look down on the family in disapproval, but they've eased away from overt ostracism because they've seen that the family is flourishing. The widow's granddaughter also follows Jesus and has determined not to follow the ancient traditions of warding off evil spirits by tying amulets around the baby's neck or limbs or having a monk or shaman recite incantations. Instead, they're trusting the Lord to provide and protect. Again, the villagers are watching closely, partly from fear and partly from curiosity because to many, it's unheard of not to perform these rituals. The local believers have committed to pray for this baby girl, and God is answering, as both mother and child are thriving!

Upcoming Family Conference
Prayer Request

  Pray with us as we prepare for our Family Conference later this year.
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us." Ephesians 3:20
"Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known." Jeremiah 33:3
"The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." Lamentations 3:25
"Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your law." Psalm 119:18
Scripture is full of verses that instruct us to have a heart of expectancy. Expectancy calls for action on our part. Let's pray that we will prepare our hearts to be expecting a move of God, a revelation, a prompting, a change, a movement that we will be ready for and not hinder. Pray that the eyes of our hearts will be opened and we will be ready  to receive from God whatever he has for each of us. May this expectancy be joyful in what we receive and that we will return to share this with the people among whom we live and work.
The Chopi people can be found between Chidenguele and Inharrime, a 100 km coastal strip, just south of Maxixe, Mozambeque. The center of this people group is found in the town of Quissico in the Zavala district. Pray for persons of peace to be identified and for God-prepared hearts to hear and reeive the Gospel. Pray believing that the Chopi will no longer be an Unengaged, Unreached People Group (UUPG), but a thriving and growing group of believers.
