“For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts.” (Malachi 1:11)
“I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” (Matthew 26:29) Even more strongly than Bosnians fasting today long for their thirst to be quenched and their bellies to be filled with extravagant food, may your Church’s anticipation be growing for the day when Jesus drinks again of the fruit of the vine that He secured through His death, burial, and resurrection. We pray that there will be many from every people group around that table.
PRAY THE BOOK OF ACTS
“All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.” (Acts 4:32) We praise You Lord for the ways believers in Bosnia are serving one another and those in need, especially refugees. We pray for your Bride in this land to continue to grow in unity and love for one another, and through this example, many would be brought into the Kingdom.
PRAY THE HALL OF FAITH
“They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated— of whom the world was not worthy—wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.” (Hebrews 11:37-38) Thank you God for the many examples of faithfulness despite desperate circumstances. Would Bosnians see these heroes of faith, as well as the faithful living among them today, and feel drawn towards You. Protect them from the evil one and preserve their faith.
Father, we lift up to you M., a widow who desires to be a godly woman. Would you help her to see that you are present with her always, that you want to hear her prayers, and know her needs. Would she find freedom in you Christ!
