In your prayers this month you’re invited to pray for:
– the installation of Rev Tuch Keovsreyleak as Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Cambodia, and the ordination of Pastor Muy Savoeun, Pastor Duy Saran, Pastor Sok Vannak, and Pastor Yin Dara.
– those living with the weightiness of intense pressure, threats, violence, imprisonment and ostracization because of religious persecution. Pray they will remain steadfast and experience the Lord’s joy despite hardship.
– Rev Emmanuel Yalamu, lecturer at Martin Luther Seminary, Lae, Papua New Guinea, as he completes his thesis ‘Decolonising Romans 12:9-21 in search of a Sustainable Hermeneutic of Community in Melanesia’.
– Grace Lutheran College, Rothwell and Caboolture, and Living Faith, Queensland, as, through their partnership with SMK HKBP Sidikalang and SMA HKBP Lawe Sigalagala TanahAlas, Indonesia, they can connect with the wider community to share their faith and grow into global citizens.
– St Paul’s Lutheran Church Wellington, New Zealand, as they support the Lua evangelists serving in northern Thailand where the church continues to grow, as people are freed from fear and the control of spirit doctors and helped to find peace while living in the grace and love of God.
– thanks to God for his provision of financial support through the committed service of Shirley Jorgensen, who dedicated 35 years as stamps collector for the Stamps for Mission program.
– Myanmar Lutheran Seminary, as they provide Christian education and sound Lutheran theological education to equip future leaders and members of the Myanmar Lutheran Church.
