Latest prayer points

Tract for Muslims
Tract for Muslims: A conversation with an Imam in the UK led to the development of a new wallet sized tract for Muslims, beginning with Abraham and his children. It is now in translation for Afghanistan and other Central Asian lands. Pray for a means to print it and distribute from person to person as well as use in an electronic format to be spread widely in these emerging new states. It is also offered free of change on the website in downloads. (Eurasia Education Foundation - January 2021)
Poverty in Afghanistan: The country of Afghanistan is one of the world’s most complex humanitarian crises. It is characterised by conflict, displacement, natural hazards, and this year the Afghan people face a new crisis – hunger. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have heightened the situation. 12.5 million people are severely food insecure and living below the poverty line. Those living in the remote Central Highlands region are most vulnerable. Please pray for families in the Central Highlands region who are hungry and face with a long, cold, harsh winter. Pray that they will receive nutritious food and water to survive now, and resources to grow their own food and ensure food security for the year ahead. Please pray for women and children suffering from malnutrition, that they will recover and learn how to stay healthy. Pray for protection over the Medair teams going the extra mile to reach vulnerable communities in the hardest to reach places. (Medair UK - February 2021)
Floods in Bangladesh: Please pray for the continued recovery and rebuilding in Bangladesh, following the heavy seasonal rains in September 2020 which triggered flooding that have inundated 40% of the country. The flood was described as the ‘worst flooding’ since 1998. Pray for all the humanitarian organisation which were involved in the relief efforts, and for the people of Bangladesh who are having to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. Pray that the Lord’s presence would be tangible for the affected people. (Mission Aviation Fellowship UK - January 2021)
Increase of faith in India: Our workers in some areas of India are reporting that during the pandemic crisis there has been an upsurge of interest in the Christian faith. As a result of this there has been a five-fold increase in the house church movement, particularly in remote rural areas. The resulting challenge is to provide written material and training in local languages. Please pray for the resources needed and that the local workers will be able to 'catch the wave' of God's Spirit in this challenging and exciting time. (World Outreach International - February 2021)
