April 2019 Prayer Points – Pray for Ethiopia
Prayer for Ethiopia
During the recent visit by our missionary to Ethiopia, Brent observed great opportunities in Messianic, Christian and Jewish communities for developing relationships between believers and the Jewish people. Also pockets of Jewish people scattered throughout the countryside of Ethiopia as well as in metropolitan areas exist in varying degrees of poverty.
“Adonai said to me, ‘Gather the people to me, and I will make them hear my very words, so that they will learn to hold me in awe as long as they live on earth, and so that they will teach their children.’” Deuteronomy 4:10 CJB
PRAYER: Father, we pray Ethiopian believers will understand your love for and relationship with the Jewish people. Likewise allow cooperation within communities to develop educational opportunities for children. Give the children hope and a future. Open up opportunities for adults to learn a skill for employment. Provide communities new wells with clean water. Strengthen the Messianic congregations to reach the unsaved.
Pray for Dominican Republic
Missionaries Wade and Debby made visits with Rabbi Eddie and wife Celeste of a Messianic congregation in Santo Domingo. The needs of Dominican Republic (DR) are beyond what we can humanly do. Pastor Eddie and Celeste depend on the Holy Spirit to connect them to those in need and praying with Jewish people and gentiles for relationship with the Messiah.
“Therefore, just as you received the Messiah Yeshua as Lord, keep living your life united with him. Remain deeply rooted in him; continue being built up in him and confirmed in your trust, the way you were taught, so that you overflow in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6, 7 CJB
PRAYER: Father, we pray for Pastor Eddie and wife Celeste. Thank you for the congregation’s children growing in relationship with You. Holy Spirit, lead them to more opportunities to extend the love of Yeshua throughout their area of influence. Refresh and strengthen them for ministry.
Prayer for Israel
Most recently a missile from the Gaza landed in a community northeast of Tel Aviv destroying a home and injuring 7 family members. There was a response from the IDF. The election of Prime Minister will be held April 9. The Trump/Kushner peace plan is expected to be announced after the election.
“Of the increase of His government and shalom there will be no end—on the throne of David and over His kingdom—to establish it and uphold it through justice and righteousness from now until forevermore.” Isaiah 9:6 TLV
