Prayer and fasting for SFCV--Wednesday

Spirit of unity  Pray for a spirit of unity among everyone at SFCV as they work together and with other ministry partners.

Now may the God of endurance and encouragement grant you agreement with one another according to Christ Jesus (Romans 15:5).

Resist temptation  Pray for missionaries to be quick to take the escape God provides when temptation sneaks up on them.  

God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape, so that you are able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13b).

As we pray, we need to be aware of some of the factors that oppose missionaries and can lead to their discouragement and make doing their calling challengine.  Here are 3  areas we can pray for SFCV.

  1. Living in an alien culture.
  2. Working among an unresponsive or hostile people. 
  3. Shortage of personnel leading to work overload.
Chinese culture, in general, view children, especially those with special needs differently than we would.  Pray that the Chinese staff will be responsive to hearing any changes that need to be made, that they would see every child as deserving of their best love and care, that there would be an abundance of God honoring and loving workers to carry on this work.

Thanks for sticking with us.  Be sure to share any encouragement or word you receive as your praying.  
God bless!
