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.
the month of May
Breccia di Roma
In April we spent the month praying for the Kazakh people group in Kazakhstan. For the month of May, we will be specifically praying for our sister church, Breccia di Roma in Rome, Italy.
Located in the city center of Rome, Italy
Being home to the church and theological training, it provides an effective springboard for promoting and launching church plants throughout the city where there is little to no gospel presence.
Now have church plants in San Paolo and Prati neighborhoods
how can we pray?
Pray that their outreach events that they held to proclaim the Gospel on 3/26 at the Imperial Forum and 04/22 at Kids in the Park bear fruit.
Pray for the many visitors who attend their services, both Italian and from abroad.
Pray for the new members and their church (and plants)- that they would be challenged to grow and live out the faith in their lives.
Pray for wisdom in the Ministry of Il Soggiorno (a refugee day center).
Pray for Leonardo as he continues to travel around Italy and present his book. Pray this will lead to a clear understanding amongst Evangelicals that we need to evangelize Roman Catholics.
