Prayer Requests 7-15-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 133

How good and pleasant it is
    when God’s people live together in unity!

It is like precious oil poured on the head,
    running down on the beard,
   running down on Aaron’s beard,
    down on the collar of his robe.
It is as if the dew of Hermon
    were falling on Mount Zion.
   For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
    even life forevermore.

  1. I am becoming “at peace” with whatever will happen. I always want to get straight to what I want. I have lain awake praying for several nights now. As always I can’t change it so I will have to accept it…whatever “it” happens to be.

  2. This diverse nation of 29 million has over 200 people groups who mainly practice Hinduism, with minority groups practicing Islam and Buddhism. Currently, three percent of the population are Evangelical Christians, largely in Kathmandu, leaving many districts with little or no Christian presence.

    There is a great need to equip local believers to reach these communities and plant reproducible, self-sustaining churches among least-reached people groups. As local believers are trained and sent out to build vibrant communities of Jesus followers in these districts, God is being glorified in miraculous ways. Many people are being healed from spiritual bondage and physical sickness, resulting in finding new life in Jesus as they encounter His amazing love.

    Please pray…
    Pray that men or women of peace would be found—leaders among their people, people of respect who have great influence. Pray that they would believe in Jesus and that others would follow.
    Ask the Lord to grant Christians in Nepal a desire to continue to spread the Gospel, and for wisdom and discernment as they reach out to their neighbors.
    Pray for the Holy Spirit to flood this nation and these districts: Baitadi, Bajura, Bajhang, Mugu, Kalikot, Syangja, Rasuwa, and Siraha. Pray that God would break down spiritual strongholds among these least-reached communities.

  3. A matter of curiosity to me: these people groups and the evangelical Christians among them, are they in denominations like us, different denominations, no denominations? Praying for self sustaining churches sounds like they are independent. Which I happen to think is quite cool, but just wondered.

  4. Mumsee, I would read self-sustaining as meaning the goal is local (not missionary) leadership, or locally supported. Independent churches without accountability or support from outside the four walls of the church is rather an American idea, I think (and the humorous part–well, sort of humorous–is that the pastors who are strongest for non-denominationalism often end up building multiple churches with themselves as the pastor of all of them, like a denomination only with fewer pastors and infinitely less accountability).
