Prayer Points 11 June 2023

Our Church

ZB Church Camp 2023 from 16-19 Jun – We praise God that a total of 369 campers aged 6 months to 82 years will be attending camp this year! Please pray for a spiritually enriching and refreshing time for all as we spend time in God’s Word and in fellowship with each other.

Pray for 84 brethren from the Chinese services who will also be holding their annual camp during the same period at another venue in Batam that they too will have a blessed time. We’ll be traveling together on the same ferries. Pray for journey mercies, smooth clearance at immigration, and good health for everyone.

Our World

India – On 2 Jun, 3 trains collided in the state of Odisha (Eastern India). At least 275 people were killed and many more were injured in the crash. One partner in Odisha is grateful that brother P travelled slightly earlier before this crash and so avoided it. Pray for healing and God’s mercy and comfort for all who have suffered. In the northeast hills, we praise God for 11 new believers added to their numbers through baptism. Pray that God will continue to strengthen and mature His flock so that they can persevere through trials when they come.

Myanmar – (CNA, 5 Jun) It is expected that a recent new gun ownership policy, which lets civilian bear arms, risks worsening the violence in the country. Our partner there is also concerned for the safety of the general population. Pray for peace for Myanmar and for strength and wisdom for all Christians be agents of peace in such challenging times.

Philippines – Our ministry partner, Student Missionary Outreach recently hosted a 42 member young adult missions exposure team from the USA and will be hosting another similar team in the coming week. Pray that the weather will be dry and sunny so that the planned outreach activities to the mountain villages will be able to proceed without disruption. Pray also that many in these teams will be inspired to explore engaging in cross-cultural gospel work to unreached areas.
