Praying for Papua New Guinea: A 365 Day Global Prayer Focus - Sept. 30

Today we are blessed to focus our prayers on a country that exemplifies the benefits of Bible translation. Translators have poured their lives into PNG, and the fruit is becoming evident with a growing Christian influence in society. Please read pages 670-675.

My prayer for today: Thank You, Lord, for the benefits of Bible translation in Papua New Guinea. Thank You for the progress and for the missions vision that is growing throughout the churches. We pray for continued prayer and pastoral presence in Parliament. We ask You to infuse leaders with wisdom to address the problems facing PNG today. We specifically pray for guidance in stemming the rising AIDS infections. Be with those churches seeking to promote biblical lifestyles and show Your love to those infected with AIDS. We pray for safety for the pilots who are a lifeline for churches and missions; equip them with the resources they need to fly safely. We pray for peace between PNG and the Bougainville islanders. Bring reconciliation and let the church lead the way to meeting the economic and social needs on the islands. Thank You for being strongly at work in PNG, in Jesus' name, amen.
