Yemen continues to grapple with hunger, high COVID-19 mortality rates, and ongoing civil war. The people of Yemen are considered to be facing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world today, and over 80% of people need help to survive. Pray for families living in active conflict zones who are having difficulty finding food. Pray for protection over these families, as without food they are vulnerable to preventable diseases. Pray for ERDO’s partners who are working very hard to distribute food on the ground to families in incredible need. Pray also for peace within communities and resolution to conflict in Yemen.

May God prepare our churches and ministries across Canada for a great harvest this Christmas season. Pray that congregation members will continue to grow in their understanding of the Word, in their relationship with God, in their relationships with one another, and in their passion and desire to reach their communities for Christ. Pray that many Canadians will encounter God and the gospel in fresh ways and decide to follow Jesus, and that they will be empowered by His Spirit. Pray also that pastors, leaders, staff and volunteers who serve will be encouraged and strengthened, and that God will grant them wisdom in planning online and in-person services and activities with a tremendous spiritual impact.

Pray continually for God to intervene in the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which has infected more than 66,243,915, and killed nearly 1,528,985 people around the world.1 Pray for healing for those infected, and comfort for those who have lost loved ones. Ask God to strengthen and protect frontline and essential workers and to grant peace to their families who are concerned for them. Pray that, as many countries begin to ease restrictions, their economies will respond well and new infections will be limited. Pray for extra protection for people in developing countries who are already malnourished and more vulnerable to this disease. Pray also for the hundreds of PAOC global workers who have remained in the country of their calling, serving their communities and displaying the love of Christ throughout this global pandemic.
