Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
— 2 Timothy 2:15
The Lord is moving among the Messianic Jewish community in Ethiopia! Congregations there are growing and reaching out to those in their communities and other areas of the nation. We are praying this continues.
We know that strong congregations and strong Believers require strong, well-equipped leadership. That is why we travel to Ethiopia every year to conduct Messianic Leadership Trainings among the Messianic Jewish congregations there.
These times of gathering around God’s Word through anointed teaching are crucial. And because your prayers are so important, we ask for your prayer-covering and intercession for these training trips. In fact, you can log onto our Jewish Voice 24/7 Prayer Watch calendar to sign up for a slot to pray from home for this essential teaching time, occurring August 16–26.
Here’s more information and how you can pray for these fast-approaching Messianic Leadership Training visits in Ethiopia:
- Two Messianic rabbis from our Jewish Voice USA staff will be on this trip, one of whom is new to our team. Please pray for both and especially that our new team member will quickly establish great rapport and relationships with the Ethiopian congregational leaders as he teaches and interacts with them
- Two Messianic Jewish leaders will also teach as guests during these Leadership Trainings. One is an Ethiopian leader from the U.S., and the other is a well-seasoned leader who has conducted discipleship schools around the world. Please pray that the Lord would use each of them individually and as part of the teaching team
Please also pray that:
- The messages of each of the four teachers work together by the leading of the Lord for real impact and equipping.
- Times of prayer, ministry and impartation during these sessions will leave a lasting imprint upon the Ethiopian leaders and translate into life, health, and growth in their congregations
- Unity and relationships will develop among all the Messianic Jewish congregation leaders gathered for the training
And as always, would you please pray for:
- Health, safety and protection for these four leaders who will be teaching the congregational leaders.
- Please also pray for the Lord’s watchful care and protection over their families and all that pertains to them back home as they travel and minister
Lord, we know that Yeshua’s (Jesus’) disciples called Him rabbi, or teacher. And Yeshua told us that His Holy Spirit was given to teach us all things. We ask that You thoroughly prepare the four leaders teaching and equipping other leaders during the Messianic Leadership Trainings in Ethiopia. May they impart Your words of life and instruction. May their teachings and presence be used by You to cause the Ethiopian leaders to grow in the Word, grow in their relationship with You, and grow as leaders of their congregations. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
