I hope everyone had a great time of worship with their local church families yesterday. Here are some IMB prayer requests to get your week started, and if you want more, click on over to Prayers for IMB where I have quite a few more for you to pray over.
Pray for all of our missionary kids this week as many of them have already started a new school year and many more are starting their new school year this week. Pray that they will develop good relationships, and their faith will be strong in the face of some very anti-Christian cultures.
Pray for any and all of our missionaries who will be preaching, sharing, testifying, and giving any number of gospel presentations this week. Pray for safe travel and smooth logistics for presenters and attendees. Pray for clear communication, and for The Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who have never heard the gospel.
North Africa: Life in North African desert lands is difficult in the summer, with temperatures commonly registering at more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Along the coast, high humidity makes the heat even more intense. Many communities do not have access to air conditioning. If people can afford it, they seek respite by moving to a higher elevation in the summer months. Spend a few moments praying for the populations of the desert. Ask that they will have the strength to persevere. Pray that they will be able to rest at night. Pray especially for their need of a loving heavenly Father, who loves them and sees their plight. Ask that before the next hot season, they will seek him, find him, and call him Lord.
