Prayer Requests - June 2019

‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God’ - Philippians 4:6-7

Praying for Our Children across Africa

Throughout 2019 many of the local Hands at Work teams across Africa are working with the volunteer Care Workers to identify and assess the most vulnerable children with a view to increasing the number of children that they are supporting. Please join us in praying for:

  • Each child who will start coming to the Care Point this year, that they will feel welcomed, safe and accepted by the other children. Pray that when they come to the Care Point they will experience the love and acceptance of the Care Workers and pray that they will come to know the unconditional love of their heavenly Father, through the Godly example of the Care Workers.

  •  The Care Workers, to have the wisdom, grace and gentleness that they need to support the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the new children. Ask God to prepare the Care Workers’ hearts to welcome the additional children, that they will have the energy and strength needed.

  • The Primary Caregivers of the children who will be coming to the Care point, that they will feel encouraged and supported by the Care Workers. Pray that they will see the Care Point as a place where they can also come to build relationships with other men and women who are facing similar challenges, and that they will experience healing and restoration.

  •  The local Hands at Work teams, to have the wisdom and discernment that they need to help the Care Workers identify the most vulnerable children in their community, who are in desperate need of the holistic care given at the Care Point.


Praying for the Local Hands at Work Team in Swaziland 

Hands at Work has Local Teams across Africa who are committed to supporting the Care Workers and the most vulnerable children. The local Hands at Work team in Swaziland consists of African and International Volunteers.   

  • Vusi is the coordinator of the local Hands at Work team in Swaziland. Pray that he will lead the team with patience and encouragement; that he will listen to Gods guidance on where to go and who to see. Ask God to give Vusi the wisdom that needs to know how best to support the most vulnerable children and families that we are caring for.

  • Our desire to grow the local team in Swaziland. Pray for God to send more African Volunteers in Swaziland with hearts that desire to be set apart from their cultural norms and sacrificially serve the most broken.

  • Pray for each team who will be visiting Swaziland to be impacted as they walk in these rural communities and pray that they will see God’s heart for the most vulnerable. Ask God to give the local Hands at Work team in Swaziland, the wisdom, strength and energy that they need to support these teams well.

  •  At the beginning of June, there will be a Maranatha Workshop for the Care Workers from the communities of Msengeni A and B. Pray for each of the Care Workers to come with open and willing hearts to receive all that God has for them. Ask God to give each person facilitating this week together, wisdom and discernment as they lead.

  • Weekly, people in the local Hands at Work team, travel to Swaziland from South Africa. Ask God to give them continued protection as they travel.
