Pray for the Nations

Please read the informational letter in your youngest child's Friday Folder regarding our desire as a school to “Pray for the Nations” throughout this year. There is also a World Prayer Map attached to this letter to use as a guide to help you as you pray for the nations. EACH student will also get their very own picture of Anani, our Compassion International child that we sponsor as a school, to keep at home.  If you have any personal connection to a missionary, please send in a picture and information about that missionary so that we can include them on our Pray for the Nations bulletin board.   Pictures and information can be given to Miss Early or the office.   During the months of November and December we will be praying for missionaries around the world. We would love to fill up our “Pray for the Nations” bulletin board with missionaries from all over the world. Also, remember to check your weekly newsletters for updated information on how we are praying for the nations.  
September: Togo/Anani
Prayer Requests:
  • Pray for the church to be refined by rooting out syncretism, false teaching, and idolatry.
  • Pray for indigenous mission agencies to establish bases which send workers to an increasingly Muslim population.
  • Pray for an end to the evils of rampant child trafficking, prostitution, and exploitation of the poor.
  • Pray for Anani (our Compassion International sponsored child)…for his physical, emotional, and spiritual needs to be met (that he would have a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ).
