Pray For The Nations
the harvest is plentiful
Why We Pray
In Exodus 32 and again in Exodus 33, we see God passing judgement on Israel and Moses interceding for them. Each time Moses intercedes, the Lord relents. In these acts, Moses sets an example of what it means to go before the Lord and intercede on a people’s behalf. The greatest example we have, of course, is Jesus Christ who is seated at the right hand of God the Father and intercedes for us (Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25). Not only that, Christ told his disciples in Matthew 9:37-38, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
At Redeemer Fellowship Church, we recognize it is not always possible for all of us to go to the nations. However, we can and must intercede in prayer every day for people around the world. Thus, on the first Sunday of every month we dedicate a portion of our Sunday morning service to pray for a specific people group, nation, or missionary. We pray for the Lord to save the lost, for believers to be encouraged and faithful to their mission to share the gospel, and for our congregation to support them in whatever way the Lord instructs. We also encourage our congregation to take a prayer card and spend the entire month praying over that specific people group or person.

Italy is in desperate need of a biblical reformation.

more about Breccia di Roma
A hub for the Gospel:
By the grace of God since its beginning in 2010 the church Breccia di Roma has sought to be a catalyst for gospel renewal throughout the city. The preaching of the Word, an emphasis on church life and multiplication, evangelism, theological training and gospel-centered cultural events, mercy ministries to refugees and the poor … have all been and continue to be part of Breccia di Roma's strategy and vision to see the gospel transform Rome and its people.
God has graciously provided a space in the city center of Rome that will enhance our efforts and impact on the city. In 2017, for the first time in almost 100 years, a location was purchased by an evangelical organization in the city center of Rome.
