Prayers for South Sudan and our missionaries!

Leave a comment

   I am writing this blog to ask my readers to pray faithfully and diligently for our missionaries in South Sudan. As you may or may not know, South Sudan is once again experiencing perilous times. Below is an excerpt from the article that one of those missionaries shared with me.

Some analysts, both African and Western, feel the situation is so hopeless that they have proposed a radical solution: an international takeover. The argument says that South Sudan’s government is not an effective or legitimate state, and that it should be nudged aside to let the United Nations and the African Union run a transitional administration for 10 to 15 years. South Sudanese officials say they would violently resist this.

   I hope you will read the full article, and commit to pray for our missionaries already in country and those who are making plans to return there.  While the article is alarming, we must grasp the truth that God will guide them as they prayerfully consider their options about continuing to serve the South Sudanese people.

   I ask you to pray for the missionaries’s families in the States, especially. In some ways it’s harder on us. The temptation to fear for the safety and well being of our loved ones is great. Pray that we will keep our focus and not loose sight of the Truth that is found in the following verses:

Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 40:10:

I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:7-8

  Satan’s attempts to render us powerless with the fiery dart of fear, will not succeed as long as we hold up our Shield of Faith.(Ephesians 6:16) Nothing can stand against us when we are centered and focused on the power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)

My Message to all of you on behalf of our missionaries and their families.

The holidays are such a blessed time of the year, esp Thanksgiving and Christmas. But know that especially around this time of the year when our families are separated by distances too great to easily overcome, your prayers are sorely needed. And from this missionary’s mom, knowing that those who pray for my beloveds are stepping up to the plate, even in these harsh economic times, and make generous contributions to the

LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS Offering 

encourages my aching heart in ways you can’t imagine. Thank you for your prayers and giving on behalf of my son and his family.

God bless all of the churches and individuals who send prayers and financial support through the Lottie Moon Christmas offering to our missionaries all across the globe.  Your loving generosity cannot be measured!
