I received an e-mail from a Christian teacher in Nigeria requesting assistance with obtaining giant print bibles. His note touched my heart, and I began to think about the compassion of the Father. The request was simply to send two giant print bibles for an elderly couple. He stated that there are other elderly members who would also benefit from the large print.
Immediately, I responded that I would pray (as he asked) to hear God's will concerning this matter. That's when it came to me to institute the International Prayer Day to intercede for ministries in remote parts of the world who are struggling to obtain resources to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Thursdays are now International Prayer Day for the Comfort and Joy Online Prayer Ministry. Won't you take a few minutes each Thursday to intercede for such ministries as the one I've described above. Begin with this simple prayer and add to it whatever comes to your spirit.
Father God, I thank you for the many ministries in remote parts of the world that are committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please bless them with the resources they need. Touch the hearts of the people you will use to bless these ministries with gifts of bibles, teaching materials, music and various other resources. Lord, please send your ministering angles to the people in _____________________________. Strengthen the pastors, teachers and leaders as they share the Gospel. (Please continue this prayer.)
Father I praise you for what you're going to do for the ministries in _________________. I believe your word and believe that you will provide for all of their ministry needs. Thank you, Lord for what you're doing and are about to do for your people in _____________________. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Good morning, and God bless you.
This has been some week. I've been busier than ever, and I'm sure you have been too.
I've received several prayer requests, and I'd like to share a few with you.
A young lady at New Hope who had a brain tumor removed.
A young couple who's preparing for marriage.
A sister in Christ who's employment status needs an up lift.
Prayers have gone up to the Father for these specific situations, and others. I'b believing God for answers that will come right on time. He's the God that heals. Healing takes place in every aspect of our lives including physical, mental, financial and emotional issues. Trust that the Lord will heal every situation you're going through. And though you might not see the miracle right away, just trust and believe you are healed. In time (God's time), you will see, feel and experience your healing and know that it's the Lord who healed you.
Stay encouraged! The Lord loves you and want only the best for you.
If you have prayer requests, please send the to firstname.lastname@example.org. Together, our prayers will make a difference.
God bless and have a great day.
