Pray

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18

MBF believes nothing of lasting significance will happen apart from the Lord’s help and blessing. For this reason, we are engaging the prayer partnership of our ministry partners in North America as well as our International Partners.

We emphatically believe that we need to be praying for each other. This is truly a ministry partnership. We are called to serve each other. We regularly share requests and concerns; here are the latest prayer requests for you to begin praying:

KENYA – KIKUYU HOSPITAL

Our prayer requests this month come from Rev. Joseph Mothaly, Kikuyu Hospital Chaplain. We’re grateful for his note, “The Kikuyu Hospital brethren also remember you [MBF] in our prayers, especially during our gatherings every Tuesday and Wednesday…We are committed to standing with other people in other parts of God’s vineyard, send us more of your prayer requests.” What a blessing to be in partnership, praying for one another.

  1. Pray for the spirit of integrity to prevail in many of Kenya’s agencies and institutions. In order for someone to receive service in the public offices one has to give a bribe.  In a country where 80% are Christians, this should not be happening.
  2. Pray for strong families in Kenya. Pray that men and youth in particular will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to resist the temptations leading to drugs and alcoholism. The result is many broken homes and women left to do the work and raise children in the absence of a father.
  3. There is drought in many parts of Kenya, which has also affected Kikuyu Hospital. Some areas have not seen rain in almost one year.  Thank God for the famine relief food people in northern Kenya are starting to receive.
  4. Pray for an end to terror attacks mainly targeting Christians in Kenya. And pray that God will equip and use Kikuyu Hospital to reach out to the many Somali Muslims who receive treatment at the hospital.

Give thanks to our God who hears and answers all of our prayers, and who can do “far more abundantly than all we ask or imagine.” (Ephesians 3:20)
