Praying for Lesotho: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - August 12

Lesotho - literally a country within a country. A mountainous country with only 10% of land farmable, Lesotho the country is below a subsistence level since it cannot even feed itself. still, it remains a young democracy with a background of Christian missions. Please read about this tiny country that has a special place in God's heart on pages 531-533.

My prayer for today: Lord, the tiniest of nations or the largest are all close to Your heart. Lesotho belongs to Christ as an inheritance, just like my own nation does. I envision Your arms embracing and surrounding Lesotho just like South Africa surrounds the land. Draw Lesotho close to Yourself, El Shaddai, you are the all-sufficient one. You are sufficient to reach into the deep financial and subsistence needs of this land. Bring them adequate food, water, and provision. Give wisdom for the leadership and continue to develop their freedom so that the Gospel can spread and Your people can help openly. Lord, we pray for balanced ministry approaches in the face of the deep AIDS and poverty needs. We pray for Biblical teaching to bring those who have heard the Gospel into a true understanding of Your Word. Sweep through churches with revival and a focus on Your Word. Bring unity among the various church bodies. Give great wisdom in outreaches to the mountain populations. Give success and protection to Mission Aviation Fellowship as they seek to fly into the hard-to-reach places of this land. Provide for these pilots and call more of these specialized laborers into the harvest. In Jesus' name, amen.
