WORLDWIDE

Pray for God’s continual intervention to stop the spread of the coronavirus which is currently impacting people around the world in 140 countries. The virus has killed more than 6,000 and infected 162,000 people. Praise God that 75,000 people have recovered from COVID-19, the disease the virus causes. Pray for healing for those who have been experiencing its symptoms, and for comfort for those mourning loved ones who could not be saved. Pray that those seeking medical attention will be able to receive it, and that first responders will be protected from becoming ill. Pray that the negative economic impact on all businesses and communities will be alleviated. Also remember in prayer the people in developing countries who already are malnourished and vulnerable to this spreading disease. Pray for safety for our global workers who are living and working in these communities. Pray also that everyone will sense God’s peace, develop more confidence in God’s Word, and that opportunities for the gospel to be shared will increase during this time.

 

Jef and Renatta Walton

MALAWI

Pray for strength for Jef and Renatta as they face many persistent and weighty spiritual warfare realities. Pray for discernment for them so they are constantly aware of the right steps and direction to take. Pray that God will protect them and their children from malaria, which is a regular threat, and most of their family has asthma. Pray for the team at Village of Hope Malawi, as Jef and Renatta are building a staff of godly Malawians who love Jesus.

 

George & Eileen Werner

EURASIA

Pray for George as he serves as the director of strategic initiatives for Next Level International (NLI) Canada. Pray for expanding relational networks in Europe through which NLI Canada can influence the creation of church planting movements. Pray for resources (human, knowledge, tools and finances) to accomplish the vision. Pray for more partnerships with Canadian churches and leaders. Pray also that during this time of global pandemic, the church in Italy would be strengthened and that many would be drawn to Christ.
