Praying together

We have the joy of being a praying community online and offline. Here is today’s prayer from Prayerlines, our daily, printed prayer guide.

Today’s prayer

“Praise the Lord,” writes local partner Shirish Suresh Suryawanshi, who is involved with Theological Education by Extension, teaching students and using his skills as a pastor and teacher to proclaim Jesus in various private and public sectors of India. “God in his marvellous grace has comforted and given us his peace after the death of four of our beloved tutors. The active participation of students and lay leaders to volunteer for tutoring is overwhelming and we have now got six more new tutors who have volunteered to help and support the ministry.” Give God thanks and glory for his goodness in the face of overwhelming difficulty. Many tutors and students do not have good mobiles and internet connections. Pray for Shirish and the team as they address technological issues and explore alternate ways of education and studying online.

Our prayers are shared daily on our Facebook feed
