Prayer Requests 2-11-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 11

In the Lord I take refuge.
    How then can you say to me:
    “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
For look, the wicked bend their bows;
    they set their arrows against the strings
   to shoot from the shadows
    at the upright in heart.
When the foundations are being destroyed,
    what can the righteous do?”

The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
   He observes everyone on earth;
    his eyes examine them.
The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
On the wicked he will rain
    fiery coals and burning sulfur;
    a scorching wind will be their lot.

For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face.

  1. The Ossetian language is part of the Iranian group of the Indo-European language family. The northern half of their traditional homeland, Ossetia or Alania, is in the Russian North Caucasus. The southern half was an autonomous region in Georgia but has been at war for many years, supported by Russia, and has currently broken away from Georgia with its own border, recognised as independent by Russia and a few other countries.

    Some Ossetians are Muslim, others are Orthodox Christian, and some follow their own unique, ancient animist religion, with its body of legends about the Narts, their mythical heroes and heroines (some of which are shared with many other Caucasus peoples). Getting past their ancient traditional religions is a major spiritual barrier to coming into real relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

    Please pray…
    We need to find keys to reaching them in their culture, and help them find their destiny as a people of God. As with all ancient peoples of the Caucasus, of which there are many, they need to deal with a pride that is a barrier between them and God.

    The area needs peace after long years of war (in the south) with Georgia.
