Thanks to the marvelous grace of God
and the support of your prayers, our team had a magnificent time in
India, Afghanistan and Pakistan. It truly was a valuable and
productive trip. People were very appreciative, especially from those
we worked with in Kabul, Lahore and Karachi. The Lord met with us and
I believe our brothers and sisters in Christ were greatly encouraged.
Please continue to pray for these very strategic and needy lands that
the Taliban and Al Qaeda along with the drug cartels will be defeated
and driven out and that the forces of good will be protected and
triumph. Pray for the newly started 24/7 prayer chains and for united
prayer and fasting efforts to be seriously and determinedly undertaken
by Christís people until these evil threats to the wellbeing of both
nations are removed.
In Sri Lanka, hundreds have been killed in what looks like an
unraveling of the peace process. The assassination of minority
community politicians, human rights activists, journalists and others
concerned to uphold democracy and the justice system has become an
increasing trend in a society that seems to be less and less ruled by
law and more and more captive to a culture of violence. Please pray
for the peace process to be restored and for violence and death to be
In Malaysia, religious extremists are becoming more and more vocal,
seeking to create misunderstanding through vicious rumors and racial
slurs and to exploit the recent conflicts between the Prime Minister
and his predecessor. Please pray for racial harmony, religious freedom
and peace to rule this beautiful nation.
The Democratic Republic of Congo also needs our prayers during the
aftermath of the first round of national elections. Fighters loyal to
the two presidential candidates have sparked gun battles that have
killed people and the sound of heavy artillery has been heard. Pray
for the UN peacekeeping force and the government to have wisdom and be
effective in ending the violence and instability and for the person of
Godís choice to be placed peacefully in power.
Two important prayer events bringing intercessors together to pray for
Russia will take place in the next few days. The first will occur in
Khabarovsk in the Russian Extreme Orient, Nov. 16-18. Some believe
revival in this vast nation will break forth from the East. May it be
so! The next conference will occur near Moscow, Nov. 21-23. Please
pray for His unity, anointing and guidance as these brothers and
sisters in Christ gather to call out to the Healer of the Nations
concerning the desperate conditions they face.
A final event I hope you can pray for is the European Prayer Summit
that will bring prayer leaders from most of the nations of this
continent to Sinaia (Sinai), Romania, Dec. 1-5. Pray that the right
people from all across this largely post-Christian, spiritually
darkened region will be able to come and that the Lord will use this
strategic event to spark a united prayer movement that will be a force
in His hands for true revival
and transformation that eventually touches every nation in Europe.
