Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Faithful Prayer Warriors:

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.”
1 Timothy 1:1

Please praise God and pray with us for the following:

1. Please PRAY for the National Women’s Retreat on October 13-14. Joy and Olga, also an IW, are coordinators for the retreat. The retreat speaker is Dr. Leida Matias from Puerto Rico. The theme is “Transformed into His Image,” based on 2 Cor 3:17-18. PRAY also for the three workshop leaders: Keila, Lila and Eunice. PRAY for a mighty moving of the Lord in the hearts of all the ladies attending.

2. The yearly National Assembly of the C&MA of Paraguay is on Friday, October 26. Please PRAY for this special gathering as a President will be voted on as well as some other officers of the national church committee.

3. The Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay (IMAP) is in its third trimester. There are 18 studying in Asuncion and 6 in Ciudad del Este. Please PRAY for the teachers and that the students would be faithful in attendance and learning. This trimester Bob is teaching an Intro to Church History course and Luis Felipa is teaching a Christian Ethics course.

4. Please PRAY over all the ministries of the San Lorenzo Church. The youth ministry especially needs a touch from the Lord and committed leadership. There is also a marriage course in progress led by Auberto and Estela for couples in the church or outside the church. PRAY for this ministry as there are a lot of trials recently for the couples attending.

5. The ladies’ meeting at the San Lorenzo Church on September 22 was a great one in attendance and also that one lady accepted Christ as Savior! Rejoice with us and PRAISE God! PRAY for a good follow-up with the lady who made a decision for Christ.

6. PERSONAL NEED: Please PRAY for Joy’s father, Bert Warden, 97 years old, who in the last few weeks has declined greatly, and wishes to be Home with the heavenly Father. He is in a full-time care home. Joy and many of her siblings are far away from where he is in Western Canada.
