Prayer Requests 6-11-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:57-64

ח Heth

57 You are my portion, Lord;
    I have promised to obey your words.
58 I have sought your face with all my heart;
    be gracious to me according to your promise.
59 I have considered my ways
    and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60 I will hasten and not delay
    to obey your commands.
61 Though the wicked bind me with ropes,
    I will not forget your law.
62 At midnight I rise to give you thanks
    for your righteous laws.
63 I am a friend to all who fear you,
    to all who follow your precepts.
64 The earth is filled with your love, Lord;
    teach me your decrees.

  1. Laos

    Communist Laos is one of the world’s least-reached nations. Persecution is rampant. Eighty-one per cent of its 6.8 million people never heard of Jesus; 113 of the 135 different ethnicities are unreached. More than half of the administrative districts have very limited access to a vibrant community of Jesus followers. Eighteen have no known believers, no church or witness at all.

    The Mekong Reach vision is to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among all least-reached communities in the Mekong basin by 2030. One discipleship training program currently disciples 15 people, the first step towards sending Lao workers out into least-reached areas.

    Thailand

    Thailand is a constitutional monarchy with a population of 69 million people; less than one per cent are Christian. Mahayana Buddhism and Hinduism influence religious beliefs, education, politics, tradition, arts, and culture. Fortune telling, idol worship, witchcraft, and talking of karma are normal. They believe only their deeds will save them, and they will need to gain it by their own strength. Thai people believe that our God is just another option among their many gods.

    One ministry working together with local churches organises a program to distribute free clothes and food—as well as the Good News of Jesus’ forgiveness—to the homeless in the Bangkok area. Many have trusted Christ through this ministry.

    Please pray…
    Laos:

    For the Lord to raise up more locals to go to the least reached in their own nation.
    Multiple businesses are intertwined with the discipleship training. Pray for the businesses to succeed and grow in impact.
    For more long-term workers.

    Thailand:

    That God will set Thai people free from the spiritual bondages of idolatry, merit offering, reincarnation and nirvana.
    For the Thai government to rule the country with righteousness, and uproot corruption.
    Please pray that all of the Christians will have the boldness to share Jesus with the least reached. Please also pray for Christian leadership to not focus only on discipleship, but also on evangelical mission.

  2. A couple days or so ago (whenever it was), I asked for prayer regarding a permanent full-time (four days a week) schedule opening up that Nightingale would love to get, but she figured others would be interested and she wouldn’t get it.

    Today she found out that of those who have put in for it, she has the most seniority, so it looks like it will be hers. She may find out for sure on Monday. Of course, it’s not a done deal yet, so please pray that she will indeed get it. It would fit into our lives so much better than what she has been doing, and she won’t have to wonder month to month if she’ll get enough shifts.

  3. She’ll also be eligible for dental and eye care insurance. (She currently is eligible for regular health insurance that doesn’t include those.)

  4. The Boy has a fever of close to 103*. 😦

    He had been real low-key since coming home from school, and had fallen asleep on the couch earlier, for about an hour and a half. He is not hungry at all, either, which shows he’s really not feeling well.

  5. I couldn’t find Nightingale’s digital thermometer, so I had to use the old glass one I had. But it had been so long since I’d used it, I had to look up how long to keep it in his mouth. (Finally found the digital one, though.)
