This Month’s Prayer Points
India – Please pray for India. More than 379,000 COVID-19 cases have been reported in just 24 hours and continues to spike at an alarming rate, which brings the country’s cases to over 17.6 million. This has resulted in hospitals reaching maximum capacities and nation-wide shortages in oxygen tanks. Families who lost loved ones have no choice but to cremate their remains in public mass cremation sites as crematoriums cannot handle the deluge of deaths in the country.
Pray that God would be with the people in India in this crisis. Pray that He would raise up beacons of hope, and that global help and relief would continue to pour out for the people. Pray that vaccines would be available and accessible and could be distributed throughout the country. And pray for India’s government and leaders as they continue to face this devastating crisis, that God would lead them and give them wisdom.
Pray for our local partner EFICOR, as they also continue to do the work they are doing for the community despite being affected by the pandemic themselves. Pray that God’s healing and comfort would be upon those who need it.
Ethiopia – Continue to pray for peace and stability in Ethiopia’s northern province of Tigray. Political unrest and violence continue to fester in that part of the country and many lives have been lost. Pray for the country’s leaders that you will be able to mitigate the situation and respond swiftly.
Latin America – Our partner in Latin America is asking for prayers for families who have lost their loved ones because of COVID in Brazil. Pray that the Lord brings comfort and peace to the people. Brazil has reported more than 390,000 deaths from the pandemic as of now.
Please also pray that this year’s hurricane season does not affect Central America, which has not yet finished recovering from the 2 hurricanes that hit them last year. Pray for peace and stability in Colombia. The threat of guerilla groups and illegal armed groups are causing people to be displaced in the Venezuelan border.
South Sudan – Please pray for our partner, the Centre for Emergency and Development Support (CEDS), as violence and political unrest continue to happen around the country. Pray for their protection as they continue to carry out their work despite the danger and COVID.
Pray for their beneficiaries’ protection, as they are the most vulnerable in times like these. Pray that peace will prevail in South Sudan, and that God would use the church to help those in need.
Liberia – Please continue to pray for our partner in Liberia, the Association of Evangelical Church in Liberia (AEL), as they hold a country-wide meeting of churches this month. Pray that the meetings and conversations would be fruitful and that the church leaders would be equipped with God’s word as they carry out their mission. Pray for everyone’s safety as well, as the country is also suffering from the effects of COVID and Ebola.
Tearfund Canada – We praise God for you and your partnership with us, through prayers and donations. We truly believe that we will not be able to do all the work we did without your help and prayers. Thank you! We ask that you lift up our team in prayer as we continue our work despite the challenges we’re all facing. Pray for God’s guidance as we search for a Church Director in Western Canada. And pray for us as we move to a new cheaper office after 23 years. Thank you for all your support and may God bless you always!
