Prayer for Wednesday, May 11


Faithfulness and Courage in the Global Community

God of Faithfulness, we pray for those who are working even now to proclaim hope in the darkest regions of this world. We pray that you strengthen and encourage them. Thank you God for allowing us to live in such a time that we are able to hear stories of transformation from the far reaches of earth. O God of Faithfulness, give us faith to see the ways in which we can lend our voices, our hands and our resources to join with and support these works, and give us courage to do so.

Who do you know (or have heard of) that has stepped out in courage to do something about the darkness and brokenness in some place beyond their hometown? Consider contacting them to ask 1) how you can pray for or encourage them and 2) what brought them to the point that they were willing to take such a bold risk? Spend a few minutes in prayer for such boldness in your own life, whether it leads you to the other side of the world, or the other side of the street.

  1. haha i told you it had got me started! iancft the missional church philosophy/structure has been buzzing around in my head since Sunday morning, where i have been mulling it over! i just wrote 700 words on this for my blog, triggered by John’s video (Hi John, i was listening too!). Once i’ve formulated this into making any sense and cut it by atleast 300 words, and stopped it sounding like a rant, but more of a structured intelligent argument i’ll post it up as a responce Thanks for the thought process though guys Laura
