"THEREFORE GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, BAPTISING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRT, AND TEACHING THEM TO OBEY EVERYTHING I HAVE COMMANDED YOU. AND SURELY I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, TO THE VERY END OF THE AGE."
- Matthew 28:19-20
Greetings in the lovely name of Jesus!
Join us in prayer for our International Teams and Visitors:
- As teams come to visit Hands at Work this year, pray they would be open to what God is going to show them.
- Pray that God would bring teams deeper into His love and reveal more of His heart for the most vulnerable.
- Pray individuals would feel convicted during their time in Africa and would determine to say “yes” to God’s call to serve.
- Pray that God will protect and provide for each individual as they prepare to travel with their team to Africa.
40 DAYS OF PRAYER
Thank you for joining us during 40 Days of Prayer. As you continue praying throughout the year, please remember to stand with us and pray for:
- The Most Vulnerable
- Pray that as the body of Christ, we would continue to intercede and bring hope to the hopeless.
- The Crisis: Poorest of the Poor
- Hands at Work is committed to working in the poorest, most dysfunctional communities in the countries we serve. From HIV/AIDS to violent unrest, pray the poorest of the poor will draw closer to God and will feel His love and protection.
- The Local Response: The Church
- Hands at Work envisions the local church in Africa effectively caring for the most vulnerable. We pray the local church will answer God’s call to respond to the cry of the poor.
- The Local Response: Community Ownership
- A core value of Hands at Work is being committed to local community ownership. Pray God will reveal local people who are willing to serve their community through sacrificial giving and compassionate relationships.
- The International Response: The Church
- As Hands at Work stirs up and mobilises the local church to care for the most vulnerable, pray the church outside Africa will stand unified in this mission. Together, we are the body of Christ, and the International Church is also called to care for those in need.
- The Example of Jesus: Relationships
- Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood (John 1:14 (MSG)). God chose to appear in human form through His Son Jesus, to have a relationship with each of us. Pray that in the way He wants to know us, we would want to know others.
Hands at Work in Africa is grateful for the dedication, commitment and support we receive from our International Hands Family.
