Local Prayer Point

We will be continuing our series in the book of Revelation. Today’s passage is from Revelation 19, verses 11-16.

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.  And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

Please pray for the following points:

  • Jesus, give us eyes to see the way see.  

  • Give us the strength to be salt and light as the nations of the world crumble.

  • Let us be ambassadors for you Kingdom, speaking in grace and truth.

The Pakhluwa Eternal Life Church in Palpa district, western Nepal, grew to 30 members in nine months before high-caste Hindus began to object. At first the Hindus complained about the guitar and drums the Christians used for worship music. But when the church quit using musical instruments in worship, the Hindus began demanding that the church stop celebrating the Lord’s Supper. The Christians then opted to travel to another church 30 miles away to celebrate Communion with other believers once a month.

Community opposition continued, until finally the church members decided to start meeting in homes instead of their church building. Attendance fell by half, until the church disbanded in November. According to the overseeing pastor, Nepali Hindus have been influenced in recent years by Hindu extremist from India.

Pray that these believers will regain the courage to meet for fellowship.
