I wanted to pray more effectively, and more specifically, for the persecuted church. And Nigeria has been on my mind for a while now.
I highly recommend @sinbach 's podcast with @Olamide - https://backtojerusalem.com/podcast/episode-586-the-christian-persecution-is-real-in-nigeria/
It is a really helpful call to action!
And next week in Prayer 2:62 we're gonna have a focus on praying for Nigeria, so I asked Olly D for a video clip we could use, and he sent me the video I've used here.
If nothing else, Olly makes it super simple what, why and how to pray and that's a priceless gift in, and of, itself!
He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.” He said to me, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son."
Jesus is doing incredible things - students being saved, set free, and set on fire for Christ!
7 have decided to follow Jesus and scores of others have made spiritual decisions to seek Jesus more deeply. Many have found freedom in Christ! Pray that even more find purpose in his mission in the days ahead!!!!
People of God in your prayers, please do remember the Christians in Northern Nigeria: Pray against the very evil spirit of radical Islam..pray for the Nigerian Government to act to stop the killings and abductions...pray that the International Community would work to stop it!
Pray for the protection of Christians in Nigeria.. pray for those who are suffering. Thank you!
This weekend a Word from God put my trials in proper perspective!
To my global family,
This message feels so urgent. I had a dream that I don't remember, only I was aware that I'd been shown an illustration of the scripture where the Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast, it's hidden but is doing its work. It CANNOT be undone! It WILL have its effect. When I awoke later, I was pondering the dream and immediately the scripture came to me, (Psalm 126:6) where the one who goes out weeping, carrying the precious seed of the Gospel will INDEED return with joy, carrying the sheaves of the harvest. The words CANNOT FAIL were strongly impressed upon my heart and mind. So, brothers and sisters, please be reminded that your labors in Christ are NOT in vain. This message was so emphatically impressed upon me that I feel there may be someone in particular who has invested so much and is wondering if it's making an impact. People are giving their lives and is it in vain? No. You CANNOT fail when you are sowing the precious seed of God's Word.
Dishwasher just caught on fire......thankfully it was only for 15 seconds cos I was at the cooker at the time
Now waiting on an emergency plumber to disconnect it so we can get it out the house...it stinks!!!
Power isolated and I've just burst into tears on Jo because at least it happened when we weren't asleep and I could act immediately - even if the smoke detectors are really good, and get tested regularly by me that, is a shock have never faced - and this is why I check those smoke detectors!!
Estate agent have been AMAZING...spoke to the director who immediately assured me he would be underwriting any damage etc
Thankfully, it's just just a dead dishwasher, a bad smell - which we're currently venting, and nothing more.....
Praise God I was standing right near to it
Actual flames coming out the front of the dishwasher!!!!!!!!!!

Please pray for;
1. Team members transitioning from currency and digital economy to materials and services or even bartering of goods.
2. Communication chaos between educated ones and Oral communities to end.
3. Father Heart of God to replace our selfish fleshly hearts.
4. The eyes of the educated may open. Mostly non literate are responding to the love of the Father and accepting Salvation through Jesus.
First Christians Sentenced to Prison under New Law in Iran - Morning Star News
>The first Christians to be punished under a newly amended law in Iran aimed at halting the growth of Christianity and other religious groups were sentenced to five years in prison for spreading “propaganda” against Islam after they refused to renounce Christ, sources said.
>Amin Khaki, Milad Goudarzi and Alireza Nourmohammadi, all converts from Islam, were sentenced under Article 500 of Iran’s newly amended penal code, which states that “any deviant education or propaganda that contradicts or interferes with the sacred Sharia [Islamic law] will be severely punished.”
