Prayer Requests 1-17-19

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 140

Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers;
    protect me from the violent,
who devise evil plans in their hearts
    and stir up war every day.
They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s;
    the poison of vipers is on their lips.

Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
    protect me from the violent,
    who devise ways to trip my feet.
The arrogant have hidden a snare for me;
    they have spread out the cords of their net
    and have set traps for me along my path.

I say to the Lord, “You are my God.”
    Hear, Lord, my cry for mercy.
Sovereign Lord, my strong deliverer,
    you shield my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant the wicked their desires, Lord;
    do not let their plans succeed.

Those who surround me proudly rear their heads;
    may the mischief of their lips engulf them.
10 May burning coals fall on them;
    may they be thrown into the fire,
    into miry pits, never to rise.
11 May slanderers not be established in the land;
    may disaster hunt down the violent.

12 I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor
    and upholds the cause of the needy.
13 Surely the righteous will praise your name,
    and the upright will live in your presence.

  1. CHINA
    In 1975, there were less than three million Christians in China; today, by the redemptive power of God, there are more than 100 million Christians. The transformation in China does not limit itself solely to numerical growth – the Church’s passion and understanding of her role in global mission has also matured. Pray for collaborative efforts in mobilising, equipping and supporting Chinese missionaries to thrive in mission fields.

    Please pray…
    Praise God for His grace upon the Chinese church. May His Church continue to flourish in His love and truth.
    Pray for Chinese Christians to stand strong amidst tightening religious restrictions and to engage in cross-cultural mission effectively.
    Pray for more Chinese believers to share Jesus with more than 350 unreached minority peoples in China.

  2. Amen. US companies doing business in China have also seen an increase in the care people have for one another–which is probably related to Christians. You only need 10% to make a difference for all.

  3. Oh, rejoice with us!

    2/3 done at 26 weeks, the baby is measuring almost 2 pounds–which is twice as much as Ava weighed at birth.

    She’s kicking and looking healthy and we are so very thankful. Thanks be to God!
