Pray with us!

Jesus made a profound statement when he said “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:21-22)

At World Renew, we believe in the power of prayer and invite you to join in praying around the globe with us. Below are prayer requests to help you pray with us for the spirit of God to move through World Renew's ministry.

 

FALL 2018

ASIA:

  • Indonesia: Pray for the people of Sulawesi, and for staff and partners on the ground who are helping families in need in the wake of a 7.5 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.
  • Philippines:  Pray for all those affected by Super Typhoon Mangkhut, and that relief efforts will continue through the work of our partner, the Christian Reformed Church of the Philippines.
  • India: Please pray for the thousands of families in the Indian state of Kerala affected by flooding in August 2018, which was reported to be the worst flooding in 100 years.  Pray that needs will be met as the waters recede and the recovery process unfolds.

LATIN AMERICA:

  • Honduras:  Pray that the heavy rains and flooding of October 2018 will soon end. Pray also for the staff of World Renew and the local church partner with whom we are working as they try to provide food and water and other urgent items for about 500 families affected by these floods.
  • Nicaragua:  Pray for the political leaders in their decisions affecting the security of people.
  • Haiti:  Pray for wisdom for those who provide leadership to the nation, especially as they feel pressure from the International Monetary Fund  to pay off debts, and pressure from Haitians who would protest if there are increases in taxes or for prices for things like fuel to help with national debt payments.

AFRICA:

  • Tanzania:  Pray that, as the dry season comes to an end, there will enough rain for the families that we serve whose livelihoods are based on crops their land yields.
  • Senegal:  Pray for the beginning of a new partnership between World Renew Senegal and the Lutheran Church of Senegal, and for God’s mercy as preparations already begin for the upcoming 2019 presidential election.
  • Zambia:  Pray for the continued blessing on the work in Zambia, transforming communities and lives in 42 villages with our partner the Church of Central Africa Presbyterians.

NORTH AMERICA:

  • Southeastern U.S: Pray for the recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Florence, and pray that damage and loss of life would be minimal as the Hurricane season continues.
  • Pray for those who lost their homes in the wildfires on the West Coast of the U.S. and Canada.  Pray that those affected by this disaster will be able to rebuild and heal from the trauma.
  • Pray for church communities throughout Canada and the United States, that their ministry will be a blessing to those in need, to those who are lonely and to those who need a place to belong.  Pray that the response to World Renew offerings will be generous and life-giving for all involved.

WORLD:

  • Pray for the 25.4 million refugees around the world who have fled their countries, seeking safety and freedom; pray that they would be met with compassion and that they would find strong advocates for their most basic human rights.
  • Pray for the 68.5 million displaced people around the world, whether it be due to conflict, disaster, any form of persecution, or any other reason; pray that they would find hospitality and welcoming communities.
  • Pray for the Church throughout the world, that we would proclaim the love and mercy of God to all who need to hear, that we would serve the broken and marginalized without prejudice and that Jesus would be glorified in all corners of the globe.
