Local Prayer Point

This is the final week of our sermon series, “What on Earth Am I Here For?” Today’s topic is that we are called to be sent.

 

Romans 8:15 says, “And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!””

 

Evangelism is one of the topics that is dearest to the heart of God, that those who are far from him would come near and surrender their lives to him.

 

Let us take a moment and pray. Specifically, please pray:

  • That God would give us faith to believe that God will us to impact people and make a difference for eternity
  • That God would give us boldness to continue to reach out to people, individually and as a church family.

Hindu activists burned the homes of seven Christian families in May of 2018 after they ignored the group’s demands to stop meeting for prayer and worship. About 10 families have been meeting faithfully every week, since converting to Christianity several years ago. Local Hindu groups had warned them repeatedly to stop meeting, but the families ignored the warning.


When the families planned a three-day prayer meeting in May, the Hindus again warned them not to meet. Although a few families stayed home, seven families attended the prayer meeting.


On May 2 at 6 p.m., each of their homes was set on fire, and the families lost everything. Police chose not to file a case because of political pressure. Now, some of the families are living under tarps, while a few are staying with relatives. As day laborers, the loss is very challenging for them, but they remain strong in faith.


Please take a moment and pray that these families will continue to grow in faith and remain strong in the Lord.
