Praise that God is bringing new workers
A young woman heard about Christian holidays in her English class. She was intrigued and asked many questions. Pray that this young woman will think about the answers she heard. Pray that God will continue to work in her life. Pray that she will talk with friends about what she has heard and that they will all accept the Savior.
A local believer (who has had house-arrest because of her faith) might undergo a big change in her life that could work for the better or for the worse for her. While trying to encourage her in the morning I read the daily verse: "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life." Ps 143:8 I sent it to her and she confirmed it with a "AMEN". Pray with her that God will guide her life.
The recent news of extremist Islamic activity is causing some adherents to begin questioning religious practices. While some distinguish their own practices from those of extremists, others become disenchanted with the entire system. There is a restlessness in many these days which unfortunately seems to be leading some, particularly young people, toward atheism. Please pray for dissatisfied and seeking hearts to find the truth in Jesus Christ. Continue to pray for revelation through dreams or visions and for followers of Jesus to be ready and alert for opportunities to share the Way.
During the Christmas season, as Christmas programs and Christian services are broadcast on TV around the world, ask that the Gospel will be clearly spoken through the songs sung and the sermons preached. Ask that people in the AP will hear the Message and be curious, seeking to know more about what true Christmas is all about. Pray that God will lead them to portions of Scripture or to those who would love to explain Christ to them.
