Week of May 7th, 2017
EUROPE/MIDDLE EAST – God, Your children in Europe and the Middle East are Your temple, and Your Spirit lives in them. May they offer themselves to You as those who have been brought from death to life and as instruments of righteousness. We thank You that though the mind governed by the flesh is death, the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace (1 Corinthians 3:16; Romans 6:13; Romans 8:6).
National Office – As Alliance Council approaches this month, continue to pray for final preparations and logistics; for those working on planning and logistics; for President Stumbo and the many speakers and presenters as they prepare their minds and spirits to minister to the Alliance family; for God to have His way; and for wisdom and discernment to hear His voice during this gathering. Pray also that this will be a time of renewal and refreshment for attendees.
EMPOWERING ALLIANCE MINISTRIES – God is calling The Alliance to be part of His plan to complete His Great Commission. We are doing it together—your prayers and support help to reach people in every segment of society, demonstrating God’s love and proclaiming the hope of the gospel in word and deed. Please pray that Alliance people will give generously to support the greatest cause on earth: making disciples of all nations. Pray too for strong giving to the 2017 Great Commission Day Offering taken by U.S. Alliance churches in May and June. A good response will help create a “tipping point”—a critical mass of Alliance workers in places where God has opened doors and hearts to the saving gospel.
SPAIN Short-term missions – Pastor Ed and Sally and Bill Lai along with Kristen, Julie, Abby, and Sydney are headed to Málaga, Spain in July. Pray for God’s full provision and preparation in the months ahead.
