WORLDWIDE

Pray continually for God to intervene and stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which is currently impacting people throughout the world. The virus has killed more than 16,000 and infected almost 373,000 people. Pray for healing for those who are sick, and for comfort for those who have lost loved ones. Continue to pray that all of the frontline workers (nurses, doctors, truck drivers, grocery store workers, etc.) will be protected and strengthened as they complete their day to day tasks. Pray that God will also intervene to limit the negative economic impact to families, businesses and communities in affected countries. Pray also that many people will be drawn into a relationship with Christ during this time through neighbours, family, friends, and online church services. Pray that God’s peace will be present in everyone’s lives and homes. Pray that all people, including those in developing countries, who are already experiencing hardship will be comforted. Pray also that God will guide and bless governmental leaders with wisdom on decisions and steps to take in this crisis.

 

ERDO

Please pray for all ERDO’s partners spread throughout the world who are remaining in their mission fields through uncertain times. Many are separated from their families. Pray for the people they serve and the sponsored children who have been sent home due to school closures. Pray for people in vulnerable areas of the world now facing lockdowns with little access to food and water. ERDO is in regular contact with global workers and program partners as they find ways to respond to this continually changing world context. Continue to pray for the very real needs of the global community as new ways are found to serve together. Also, thank Jesus for His constant love and care for all of us, as He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ask or think.

 

FAMILIES

Pray for the salvation of sons and daughters of pastors who are not currently following the Lord. Pray that God will draw them back into a relationship with Him. Pray also that God will encourage the pastors and their wives, and give them hope in regards to their children.

 

Scott & Melissa Williams

SPAIN

Pray for Scott, Melissa and their two children as they minister in Spain. Pray that God will present effective ministry opportunities for them, and that as they share the gospel and show the love of Jesus, many lives will be changed.
