Sermon Series on the Psalms [10.18-11.15]

World Mission Offering – 31 Days of Prayer

  1. Father, help us to see the needs [mental, physical, ans spiritual] of our missionary children, who go because their parents are called to global ministry. In Jesus’ name. [Faye Yarbrough]
  2. Father, thank you for the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus in Hungary. We ask that the door stays open and that all find living hope in Christ. [Amanda & John Good, Hungary]
  3. Father God, I come to you in the name of our most precious Lord Jesus Christ. Please bless all the Master in Theological Studies students as they go out into their communities to share the gospel and the love of Christ with those who are lost in the darkness of this world. May you be glorified. Amen. [Jae Stockton, Mexico]
  4. Gracious father, teach us to see your image in those who suffer, so that we might be agents of peace and transformation in our broken world. [Eliberto & Molly Juarez, El Salvador]
  5. Heavenly Father, thanks to Jesus who bore our shame on the cross and restores our honor. May we give our allegiance to you alone as we teach your people. [Gordon Hwang, Japan]
  6. God of love and God of grace, we praise you because your ways are righteous, and your path is peaceful. You have the power to bring to pass that which seems impossible for us. In the Middle east we are hemmed in from all sides. But thank you, gracious Father, you can do all things. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen! [Dan & Sarah Chetti, Middle East]
