3) Let’s Pray for Peace in Burkina Faso

The PrayerCast people wrote recently,” Over 200 churches have closed in northern Burkina Faso to avoid further attacks. “If the world continues to do nothing…the result will be the elimination of the Christian presence,” said the President of the nation’s Episcopal Conference. Though Christianity is the minority (Islam the majority), it is now a quarter of the population! Islam and Christianity have largely enjoyed a peaceful coexistence.

 

“But this once peaceful country has turned into a hotbed for extremism – and now the long-held peace is threatened. Though Christians have been specifically targeted in recent attacks, this violence has taken hundreds of Christian and Muslim lives and displaced tens of thousands more! Meanwhile, Islam is spreading into nearly every ethnic group, with unreached peoples steadily turning to its teachings.

 

“It is URGENT that the Gospel reach the Burkinabe – roughly five million have never heard it! And so we pray!” It seems to be our first and best option. But let’s not let it be our last.

12) In Two Weeks: 15 Days of Prayer for the Hindu World 2019

This 15-day prayer campaign kicks off October 20th and ends on November 3rd. It’s just in time for the Diwali season. Diwali symbolizes the “spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.” Light, in Hinduism, is “knowledge and consciousness”. Many Hindus pray ‘Asatho ma jyothir gamaya.’ (‘Lead me from darkness to light’). Of course, Christians believe that Jesus claimed, ‘I am the light of the world.” Pray that Hindus can find Him as light and hope.

14) The Last Bit: What Can We Do about Human Trafficking?

I was pretty shocked at the July 29th article in USA Today about human trafficking. I didn’t realize what a massive, worldwide problem human trafficking had become. I didn’t know there were 4 million victims right now, including 1 in 7 runaways. (Girls in foster care are particularly vulnerable.) I had no idea about the money involved — billions of dollars annually. I had no idea that prosecutions were down, even though trafficking is up. But now that I’ve learned this, I’m concerned: What do I *do* about it? First, please read the article at…

Now — will someone please coach us on what common folks can *do* about it… please. Just click comment.

 

1) Join Others in Praying for Muslims during the Hajj

Hats off to the people at pray-ap (Praying Through the Arabian Peninsula, otherwise known as PTAP). They’ve developed a superb website for the upcoming time of Hajj to Mecca (Aug. 9-11). Of course, many Muslims are already traveling there to go on the spiritual journey of a lifetime. The idea behind the site is to pray that they would journey into the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ instead. They’re asking us to join in praying for the 2.5 million Muslims who will be performing the Hajj this year. Would you and your group consider praying? If so, learn more at…

 

www.pray-ap.info/hajj.html

 

They’ve placed videos and information there in 8 languages, including English, Korean, French, Portuguese, Arabic, Spanish, German, and Chinese. Oh — and by the way — Prayercast is reportedly preparing more for the Hajj as well. More on that soon.
