“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11, NKJV)
Hi, this is Eleanor Witcher of IMB’s prayer office, joining you in praying for the nations.
There is a sense of urgency and renewed energy among the Jesus followers in Tunisia, following times of intense prayer this spring. They are seeking “people of peace” (Luke 10:6) who will connect them into social networks of men and women who will then become reproducing disciples.
Over the next several months, teams on a Southeast Asian island are planning special times of joint prayer and fasting. It is hoped that this humbling before the Lord will help them hear God’s voice and enter into His work in a new and powerful way. Workers want to remove any barriers through repentance and ask the Lord for strengthened team unity. They are also interceding for a movement of the Spirit among all 50 of the unreached people groups on the island.
Workers among the Sedang of Laos ask us to literally join them in praying: “Father, we praise You that there are believers among the Sedang in Vietnam, and we pray to You as the Lord of the harvest to thrust out laborers from Vietnam to their cousins in Laos. Father, You know that it seems that no one is working with the Sedang at this point in time. That knowledge must bring You great sadness. It is reported that the Sedang once had a flood story and felt that the Creator God was upset with the human race at one time. It is also reported that the Sedang heard the Gospel in the 1800s and welcomed the Good News. Oh Lord, may the situation in Laos change dramatically so that the Gospel will once again be welcomed in every area.”
* Please pray faithfully for the Sedang of Laos.
* Ask that new Tunisian believers will be willing to use their time and energy to train others, quickly passing on what they are learning.
* Thank the Lord for brokenness that leads to repentance and for renewed passion for the work.
