Prayer Points: We don’t usually do it this way, but…

March 01, 2023

We don’t usually do it this way, but our first Outreach location of 2023 is the same as our last Outreach location of 2022. We are excited to return so quickly to this region in Southern Ethiopia, where the need is so great. The Lord allowed us to have a significant impact there in December regarding salvation and healing. With your help, we were also able to make improvements to the local clinic site that now increase their eligibility for more government assistance. Even the local authorities expressed their gratitude.

We now ask the Lord for the double blessing of once more bringing high-impact ministry here through medical care, clean water, and the sharing of the Good News of Yeshua (Jesus).

Would you please pray along with us for this Outreach using the daily prayer points below? We hope to see every hour of the Outreach covered in prayer – and you can help. Sign up here to choose a time to pray from home.

Here are ways you can pray each day:

Let’s Pray

Lord, our hearts were touched by the peaceful people of Southern Ethiopia. We know You are the One sending us there again to use us to minister and meet needs. Come with Your power and might, and provide for these dear ones. Would You especially meet their spiritual needs? Satisfy the cry of their hearts with Yourself. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
