Prayer for Chad: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - April 3 (Day 93)

Today we continue to pray for Chad. Please review pages 205-209.

It's great to get an inside perspective from someone on the ground. Today we have a video from a church planter who is working with one of the unreached people groups. It will give insight not only into Chad but into what it's like to be on a church planting team. If God is calling you to be involved in missions to unreached people groups, either through praying, giving, or going, I encourage you to check out Pioneers.  Following the video and my prayer are some additional links for Chad that one of our group members compiled. As always, if you have special experience in or awareness of a particular country please let me know; I would love to pray with you about how we can utilize your expertise within this blog family!


My prayer for today: Oh Lord, thank You for this church planting team and their work in Chad. We pray for the success of their efforts and for the full Bible to be available in Chadean Arabic and in the heart languages of the unreached people groups. Lord, we pray You will do battle against the enemy's efforts to take Chad captive to lies and false belief systems. We pray for Christians to stand boldly against the temptation to tribal initiation rites and the bondage of spiritism. Lord, bring unity to the church across tribes and denominations; remove all legalism and replace that energy with the energy to unite around a common vision for outreach. We pray for an understanding of the need for leadership training  and for the resources and time to spend on the process. We pray for the success of field and extension-based studies that will allow leaders to learn "on-the-job". We pray for You to finish the task in Chad in every way. In Jesus' name, amen.
