Prayer Walking through Diego . . .

There is a lot to notice as you walk down the streets of Diego Suarez . . . lots of people and lots of mosques. You will meet people from various tribes who come seeking jobs in the North. Our people group, the Northern Sakalava, are steeped in an identity that strives to please their ancestors.
Our prayer is that the peoples of Northern Madagascar would come to know their true identity in Christ Jesus.

"Now this is eternal life; that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." John 17:3

Our town is dark and lost not only in traditional ancestor worship, but in other false teachings. There are many voices crying out into our town, keeping people afraid and hard-hearted. Our prayer is that God would soften their hearts, that their eyes would be opened to the truth and that their ears would be willing to hear the gospel.

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

Please pray for the leaders of our town and our country. Our prayer is these leaders would seek guidance and direction from the Lord. That they would seek His counsel in how to provide employment, health care and education to the men, woman and children of our area.

"Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long." Psalms 25:11

We pray for our church, that it will be a source of light in our community. Our prayer is that as people grow in their knowledge of Jesus that they would take that to areas all over town. That they would share the love and truth of Jesus Christ. They they will share with others how He is working in their life!

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
