prayer prevails

On September 25, Representatives Emmanuel Cleaver and Trent Franks  co-sponsored a letter to the Chief Minister of Orissa State, asking him to address the issue of violence and violation of religious freedom that has been taking place over the past year in Orissa. Prior to the letter being sent out, Open Doors hosted a campaign asking people to contact their congress representatives and ask them to sign the letter. Thanks to your efforts, 21 representatives signed the letter. Pray that the letter is well received by the Chief Minister of Orissa State and that effective, legal action is taken immediately to give justice to victims of the Orissa attacks.

The beautiful islands of Maldives, located in the Indian Ocean, are in need of our prayers. There are currently 100 short term missionaries there. Pray that God gives them wisdom when evangelizing and that their short stay is able to make a long term impact. Also pray that God calls long term missionaries to the island to plan churches and share the gospel. Also pray for seafarers from Maldives as they are often lonely and go up to 12 months isolated from friends and family.

This article is a bit old, but still worth mentioning. In early September the State Assembly “approved legislation that would allow courts to seize any property, such as house or automobile, used in the commission of human trafficking. In addition to the courts seizing property, SB 557 would add civil penalties of up to $25,000.”  Praise the Lord! Pray that more advancement is made to stop human trafficking in the U.S. as well as other countries.

Pray for the recent events of persecution in India.

My friend, Jaime, is pregnant with twins and should be delivering in three days, on the 8th. Pray that everything goes smoothly and her two baby girls are healthy.

Keep praying for all who are unemployed. My dad has a second interview this week with a well known publishing company. Please pray that all goes well.

Please say a special prayer for our troops in Afghanistan. I don’t have any details, but my friends fiancé is deployed there now and I know the past couple months the troops have had many brushes with death.  Pray for all their families…strength, love and comfort for the families of those who have already been killed and perseverance, strength and hope for families waiting for safe returns.
