Prayer for Malawi

Happy new year! Thank you so much for your continued prayers for Hands at Work. 2010 was such a wonderful refining time as we learned to wait on our God. We are excited about what God has in store for us this year as we reflect on who we are and what we are living for through the shining example of Christ.

Today we’d like to hold up our Malawian family in prayer.

Please pray for Roy, who is our Service Center coordinator in Malawi. On his way to our Zambia family for a regional gathering of Hands, his bag and passport were stolen. Please pray that he would quickly and easily obtain the travel documents he needs to return to his family in Malawi and also that all his needs will be provided for in the meantime.

Malawian team has asked that we stand with them in prayer for: 

  • God to guide their steps and show them the right new communities to break in to
  • unity and love to abound in the Hands at Work team in Malawi
  • better and deeper relationships with the communities they serve
  • God’s heart to continue to be imparted to the care workers and give them the strength and motivation to continue caring for vulnerable children

Let us seek God while He’s here to be found and pray to him while He is close at hand. (Isaiah 55:5-6) and pray for the abundant life described in Isaiah 55:12-13 for our family in Malawi:

            “For you shall go out with joy,
            And be led out with peace;
            The mountains and the hills
            Shall break forth into singing before you,
            And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
            Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
            And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
            And it shall be to the LORD for a name,
            For an everlasting sign that shall endure forever."
