Prayer for Venezuela: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - Dec. 16

Today and tomorrow we pray for a country whose direction could literally change a region. Venezuela currently embraces dictators, provides safe havens for criminal leaders, and seeks to control its region and its people. A turnaround here could impact millions, both inside and outside Venezuela. Please read pages 878-881, and join me in prayer for Venezuela today.

My prayer for today: Lord Jesus, we are thankful that You are sovereign, You raise up leaders and remove them. We thank You that despite the hardships of Venezuela, the church is growing and believers are seeking to advance spiritually regardless of the country's situation. We pray for the success of their ministries. We do pray, Lord, for Venezuela's struggles. We pray for the people who are financially destitute, and for those for whom Venezuela is only a stopping point as they are trafficked elsewhere. Raise the awareness of this situation to the world, and stop this evil. Lord, we pray for Christians to be able to lead quiet, peaceful lives in godliness and dignity, as Your word describes. In Jesus' name, amen.
