Prayer Requests 2-7-19

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

   You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
   the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

  1. The Pamirs are the mountainous region of North Eastern Afghanistan, Eastern Tajikistan, Western China and Northern Pakistan. The isolated and impossibly rugged valleys make a precarious home to a number of distinct people groups.

    Separated by soaring mountain ranges, these mountain people are united by their belief in the Ismailii Muslim faith. Among the largest of these unreached people groups are the Shughnoni of Afghanistan and Tajikistan.

    As recently as seven years ago there were no known followers of Jesus from among the Shughnoni living in their mountainous region. Yet, God has begun a work among this people and the first fruits of the Gospel can now be seen.

    Please pray…
    Pray for new groups of believers to gather and grow in faith. Pray for family groups of believers to form and that the emerging Shugnoni church would redeem and embody their cultural identity.

    Pray for the translation of the Scriptures into the Shugnoni language. The work is just beginning in this previously unwritten language.

    Pray for teachers, evangelists and pastors to be raised up within the young church with a vision to see vibrant communities established among least-reached communities.

    Ismailii Muslims give their extreme devotion to the Aga Khan and form a very close and committed community. Pray for a breaking of the bondage that Ismailiis have to the Aga Khan and that change within the religious system and structure that would allow for growth of the Jesus’ kingdom.

  2. Thank you to all who have prayed for my eye surgery. Today I am feeling better. My eye has not felt like it had grit in it and the itching that made me feel like I wanted to claw it out last night appears to be gone. What a blessed relief. My distance vision is improved and hopefully enough so that I can get my license within the next month.
