Our verses for this week are Matt. 28:18-20

Hi praying folks,

Our verses for this week are Matt. 28:18-20.  “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ ”

  1. InterVarsity–a. “Please pray for a student leader with a severe form of fibromyalgia; he is in constant physical pain, which is taking a mental and emotional toll on him and his mom.”  “Please pray daily for Jesus to give him endurance for the pain and for the doctors to have God’s wisdom for the appropriate treatment.”  b. TODAY is the first InterVarsity meeting at DVC.  “We will look at the parable of the Great Feast.  God wants His house to be full! Luke 14:15-24.  Pray the Holy Spirit will draw students to come and feast on His word.”  Pray the meeting will be well-attended even if they have to meet in the dining room.  Pray also that they will soon have a sponsor from DVC staff so they can meet in a classroom.
  2. Ron & Linda, India–Pray for them as they coordinate the building of churches in Uganda, India, and Cuba, and raise funds for orphanages and various projects.
  3. Pray for Pastor Tony training pastors in Costa Rica.
  4. Pray for PURE ministry, which seeks to demonstrate pure, undefiled faith in Jesus by caring for orphans.
  5. Tara, Frontier Fellowship–Tara has returned safely from the ASK network’s prayer gathering, tired but grateful and satisfied.  Praise–“It was an absolute joy to see dear old friends from Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA, many of whom I only get to see when we gather to pray.  It was also wonderful to make many new connections.”  Praise–“God gave us grace and stamina to pray by name for every nation in the world, and for each of the nearly 7000 people groups on earth who have little or no access to the Good News of God’s Kingdom.”  Pray “that every seed planted in our hearts will continue to grow, inspiring us to carry on in asking God to fulfill His perfect purposes ‘on earth as it is in heaven.’ ”  Please also pray for protection, rest and health for Tara and the other intercessors as they recover from international travel and 12 very full days.
  6. Pray God will draw those He wants to the Authority to Heal seminar 2/10-2/11.  Pray God will be glorified, and healing will happen in Jesus’ name.
  7. Uganda Summer Mission Trip–Pray for a multi-church team of at least 10 people to go to Raise the Roof Academy this summer.  Pray God will gather the people he wants, they will work well together as a team, and they will experience the blessing of working with Christians from different denominations for the common purpose of extending God’s Kingdom.  Pray the informational meeting 2/4 will be well-attended.  Pray for the team as they plan a VBS for 1000.  If you know anyone who is interested, I can get you Robin’s contact info.

Thanks for praying!  God bless you!  Sherri
