“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful,” (Colossians 4:2).
SUNDAYS • Praising God for team unity
Praise God for supportive relationships between workers and local Christians. Christ prayed that all of us may be one, so that the world may believe (John 17:22). Maintaining unity can be challenging. May Christ give us strength and unity for his glory and the salvation of others. Thank God for his abundant grace, seeing the Holy Spirit break through barriers, allowing millions of East Asians to learn more about Christ.
MONDAYS • Praising God for new workers
Praise God for calling, equipping, and sending new workers. Thank him for ministry partners who are fully supporting their financial needs. Pray for these new OMF members, learning language and cultural adjustment: Aaron and Nikki (to Taiwan); Ashley (to Japan); and Emily (to Cambodia).
TUESDAYS • Language learning
Thank God for local teachers across East Asia who help OMF workers learn the language. Pray for wisdom for the teachers as they navigate online learning and find the best ways to help their students. Pray for good internet connections as much of the teaching is online, spanning wide time zones. Pray for physical strength and mental concentration.
WEDNESDAYS • Children’s education
As with many other schooling situations in the world, schools in Cambodia, including the international schools, are finding the current situation to be quite difficult as students and teachers navigate an online learning environment. Pray for guidance and wisdom for teachers, administrators, and parents as they help children through this challenging time.
THURSDAYS • Laotian diaspora
Thousands of Lao Christians live overseas, in places like the U.S., Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia. Please pray that these believers would demonstrate a compassionate heart for their homeland and explore opportunities which will support what God is doing within the nation of Laos.
FRIDAYS • The power of God’s Word
Praise the Lord for over a hundred people in Thailand studying a course on the Bible over the internet. Pray for them not only to gain knowledge about Christianity but also to get to know the Lord. Pray for the mentors to be led by the Holy Spirit in their interactions with each student.
SATURDAYS • East Asian believers
Praise God for believers living for Christ within each nation of East Asia. May each believer “bear fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that [they] may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father,” (Col. 1:10-12).
