Prayer Focus 30/10/2022 - 05/11/2022
October 30—Sri Lanka
The current economic challenges seem, in a way, to have made people forget the religious and ethnic differences for the time being. Pray that they will be more receptive to the Gospel and to Derek’s teaching.
In the state of Tamil Nadu, where Directors Elsie and Danny are based, the party in power tries to disrupt the peace and progress being enjoyed resulting from a good, God-given local government. Pray that God will give them and local pastors courage and wisdom to handle the adversities they face.
Pray for our staff and outreach workers worldwide to carry out their work and outreach projects with God’s guidance, protection, and strength. Many are experiencing physical battles, political unrest, economic needs, and religious restrictions. Let’s continue to trust the Lord and declare that He is faithful!
On 11 November, our next online course, “Entering into God’s Presence,” will begin. Our desire is that more and more Dutch-speaking people will worship the Lord in Spirit and truth. Pray for God to open their hearts. Also pray for new staff to support us in the development of online courses.
November 3—Eastern Europe
- Pray for Director Branislav. He needs the Lord’s wisdom and protection as he oversees the work in over 10 countries, traveling regularly to visit the outreach workers.
- Pray also for the Lord’s continued provision for all the work being done in these nations.
- Continue to pray for the Lord’s wisdom and guidance regarding opening a DPM office in Italy.
- Translation work continues on Italian subtitles for YouTube, so also pray for those involved.
- We started releasing audiobooks, beginning with “Agreeing with God” and “Hearing God’s Voice.” Pray that many people will download them and be blessed by them. Also pray for Thierry and Frédéric, who voice our audiobooks and videos.
- More videos are being dubbed, as the French prefer this over subtitles. Pray that our YouTube channel will have more visitors and that Derek’s messages will deeply impact all who hear them.
- Pray for Caroline as she sets up a new WhatsApp channel, which will allow people, especially from Africa, to share Derek’s messages.
- Pray for increased sales in Québec, Canada (French-speaking) through our wholesaler, CLC Diffusion.
