Prayer Points

We are taking the Good News to a small city in Ethiopia. It will be our first Outreach there, although there are already 10 Messianic congregations in the region.

We have been praying to break ground in new areas, as we did in Chivi, Zimbabwe, a few months ago. This can be challenging work! However, with your prayers and the Holy Spirit’s help we look forward to what the Lord will do as we enter another new area, this time in Ethiopia. We need your prayers covering this Outreach in a region that desperately needs the ministry of Yeshua (Jesus), the Prince of Peace.

Please pray with us, starting now, for this Ethiopia Medical Outreach taking place May 19–29. You can help cover these dates in prayer by signing up on our Jewish Voice 24-7 Prayer Watch schedule and by using these daily prayer points. Please pray for:

In this area that needs You so much, we pray for Your Spirit to move and to make Yeshua known. Help us be Your hands of love and give us Your words of life to speak. We believe You truly have good news for this location. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
