Prayer Requests 4-16-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 76

God is renowned in Judah;
    in Israel his name is great.
His tent is in Salem,
    his dwelling place in Zion.
There he broke the flashing arrows,
    the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.

You are radiant with light,
    more majestic than mountains rich with game.
The valiant lie plundered,
    they sleep their last sleep;
   not one of the warriors
    can lift his hands.
At your rebuke, God of Jacob,
    both horse and chariot lie still.

It is you alone who are to be feared.
    Who can stand before you when you are angry?
From heaven you pronounced judgment,
    and the land feared and was quiet—
when you, God, rose up to judge,
    to save all the afflicted of the land.
10 Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise,
    and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.

11 Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
    let all the neighboring lands
    bring gifts to the One to be feared.
12 He breaks the spirit of rulers;
    he is feared by the kings of the earth.

  1. The Gorani are ethno-linguistically Slavic, but religiously Muslim. This separates them from the (Muslim) Albanians and the (Orthodox) Slavs, and they often feel forgotten and misunderstood. They live high up in the mountains on the border of Macedonia, Kosovo, and Albania.

    They are one of the few unengaged least-reached people groups indigenous to Europe. Hundreds of years of Gospel neglect and religious and ethnic boundaries are spiritual strongholds that need to be broken.

    Please pray…
    Pray for the Gorani who have come to faith through short-term outreaches. Pray they may receive excellent discipleship to persevere.

    Some recordings have been made of Bible stories in the Gorani language. Pray for wide distribution.

    Pray that God will quickly raise up a long-term, resident church planting team among the Gorani, consisting of Balkan and international workers.

    Islam is deeply woven into the Gorani self-identity. Pray for dreams, visions, and the Holy Spirit to prepare spiritually open people.

  2. As far as I know, which is not much, She did not have the surgery yesterday. The majority of the family seem to have withdrawn themselves from the situation with only the youngest even caring how mom is feeling. I am quite upset, wish I was there and that I could meet the needs, but I am casting this care on the Lord as He knows the needs, the hearts and the answers. Elsa is suffering both physically from the cancer and emotionally from the apathy of many of her children.
