Missional Prayer

Prayer points from our missionaries around the world

Rick and Madara Dugan (Latvia)
When asked to share a “positive” in ministry right now, Rick replied:
“Right now, I'm very encouraged that so many people around the world (including 14 from North America) are going through a 6-week disciple making workshop online. Of course, I'm encouraged that there's interest, but it makes me think that God is stirring something in the hearts of many. I don't know that I have all the wisdom and knowledge to guide them, but I'm encouraged that they're seeking. And I trust the Holy Spirit to lead them. I'm grateful for this small window of opportunity to speak into their lives and share the things the Lord has shown us about disciple making over the years.”
Tim and Amy Dawson (Spain)
“We can finally leave our area now thanks to a relaxing of COVI(D-19 restrictions. We are thanking God that we can get out and about more and help at a local food bank that is run by one of our partner churches. Many of those who come for help, and even some of the volunteers, do not yet know the Lord as their Savior and this is a really exciting opportunity for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus!”
Steve and Sheila Harrigan (Fort Wayne)
“A couple of Saturdays ago, we had a wonderful training retreat with over 20 volunteers who are serving in ministry with us among the Burmese Muslims. They came out to learn how to engage in spiritual conversations and how to defuse antagonistic questions towards Jesus.” Please pray for open doors as well as a growth in the army of young adults who are reaching out to the Muslims in our city this summer.
Adrianna Manaugh (Thailand)
“Sometimes it is hard to think about something positive amid so much going on, including the coup in Myanmar causing more displacement, and many literal fires in the areas that we work, displacing the already displaced. In light of all the bad things that seem to be happening to those we work with, our organization is still able to respond to these crises and help minister to the people who are affected by providing basic needs, showing them that we love and care for them, and that they are not forgotten. In the most recent fires in the Rohingya camp in Bangladesh, our local team on the ground were able to visit and give food to 50 families. In Myanmar we have also been able to get food and supplies to many people who have been displaced. The Lord continues to provide so that we can show the love of God to others.”
