Prayer for Jamaica: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 24

Today's prayer is for an island nation many may only associate with tourism, but which has a beautiful Christian heritage AND rich missions history. Please read about Jamaica on pages 486-488.

My prayer for today: Lord, we thank You for the heritage of Jamaica and for the strength of the Jamaican church. We are grateful for the missions history of this country and for the branches of missions agencies located there. God, we lift up Jamaica to You in the midst of this moral and social collapse. Call many to pray, Lord, to pour out their hearts before Your throne for Jamaica. We pray for renewal for the church and wisdom for the church networks. Call Christians to revival and repentance. Lord, equip the Bible schools and seminaries to be strongholds of truth. Guide churches to know how to reach the poorest of the poor and those who follow the Rastafarian cult. Set them free, God, to serve You fully. In Jesus' name, amen.
