Praying for Indonesia: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - July 12

Today we pray for Sulawesi and Maluku islands of Indonesia. Please read pages 460-462.

My prayer for today: Lord, we pray for revival for the churches on Sulawesi. We pray for You to raise up a banner of truth - raise up Bible translators and teachers who can proclaim Your Word faithfully. We pray for protection against cults and nominal Christianity. Breathe life into Your church. Give each believer a deeply personal experience with You. Guide the church to be stronger and aware of the opportunity You've given them among the Muslim majority. For Maluku, Lord, we grieve over the ethnic cleansing that occurred. We pray for those who remain refugees from this horrific season. We pray for true peace through Jesus and for Christians to reach out as co-sufferers to Muslims who also endured persecution from extremists. Lord, we are awed at the long life span of the Maluku Protestant Church and pray for its revival. We pray for healing for the people and that they will be equipped to love and serve their Muslim neighbors and even former persecutors. Let Your love flow through them, in the name of Jesus, amen.
