Do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
(2 Corinthians 4:16)
This month: Pray for comfort in difficult times. We ask You to be with us, Lord, to guide us over rocky ground and help us to the place where you would have us be. We especially ask you to be with Kenya, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
In Kenya and Uganda, the harvests have failed, and millions are at risk of starvation. We pray that help will come, and many can be helped through this difficult time. Please pray that the Lord enables us to help many through our feeding programmes. In particular, please pray that we are able to provide meals for all the children at the Nancy George Academy in Kenya, and for the children we sponsor in northern Uganda.
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Ebola outbreak has had a dreadful effect and many have died. Please pray for this country, that the virus will disappear and people will be spared. Pray also for a breakthrough in finding both a preventative vaccine and a cure for this terrible disease. Pray also for the school we support and all those connected to it, as well as all our projects in the area. Pray that those with whom we work will be protected, and that we will be able to provide them with the supplies they need to keep Ebola at bay.
We also ask that you pray for: Philippines: Give thanks for our school in Baguio City and for children able to receive both a good education and a solid grounding in Christ. Pray that each child will be able to use that grounding to come to know Jesus personally, and that He will impact every aspect of their lives. Pray also that the school will be able to meet the needs of its students, and thatw e can provide support and resources they need to do this.
UK: Please pray for someone to fill the role of our Church Partnership Manager. May God be prompting them of their need to fill this post, and may He give us the wisdom to choose the person He has put aside for the job.
