Prayer for Goma

Greetings in Jesus’ Name,
 
                       EVEN THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY,
                                 OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL

                                                      STAFF, THEY COMFORT ME.

Pray for Luhonga, DR Congo

Greetings in Jesus’ Name.
 
                                       Even though I walk through the valley of
                                              the shadow of death ,                         
                                                    I will fear no evil, for you are with me,
                                                              Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
 
   Please pray for:
 
                             Luhongo in Eastern DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO.
 
Hands at Work supports Muungano Community Based Organisation in Luhongo where many vulnerable children have again been affected by attacks from rebels.
The children we care for, ranging in age from 1 – 10 years, fled with grannies and Care Workers to Sake, a refugee camp, when the rebels also attacked Sake.
Many were wounded by gun shots and five people in the refugee camp were killed. We are not able to get much more information than this.
They live in constant fear. Many fled into dense forest areas and are lost.
As no food can reach them there is a fear that starvation will claim lives.
 
Pray for all the leaders to have wisdom to face the many challenges.
Pray that Care Workers will find these children even as the situation is desperate.
 
These children are so traumatized and we pray for God’s mercy. That they will experience His love.
 
Be blessed,
Oumie

Greetings in Jesus’ Name,

                                    may Your justice continue to roll on like a river, and righteousness like waves
                              for we can do everything through Christ who gives us strength.
 
Praise for God
Hands at Work has just turned ten years old!
It is amazing what, with God’s grace and guidance, has been accomplished in 10 years. From a small beginning Hands has developed into an organisation to reach and support thousands of vulnerable children.
We are grateful for prayers, support and encouragement from friends and family worldwide!
 
Prayer Requests 
Please pray that churches and communities will mobilize and respond to the needs of vulnerable children.
Please pray for community programs that will enable children to grow their own crops to provide essential nutrition in their diets.
Pray that children, taken in by other families living in extremely difficult and crowded conditions will not be abused.
Pray that orphaned siblings will be able  to live together or at least remain in contact with each other.
 
Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo
Urgent prayer is needed as rebels have entered Luhongo  Village where Hands at Work has begun care for very vulnerable children.
Pray for grannies and children fleeing to the woods to be protected.
Pray that Care Givers will be able to find these children.
Pray that feeding schemes to be restarted as everything has been disrupted due to rebel activities.
 
                         Who ever welcomes one of these little children in my name
                                       welcomes Me.
