18 OCTOBER 2013
Dear Friend, We live in extraordinary times. Social, economic, political and the natural spheres of life are groaning & shaking. These extraordinary times require extraordinary measures! What can be more extraordinary then to call on the Lord God Almighty in prayer! The Bride Christ Needs it! The lost in the nations need it! We on a personal level need it! A move of God to challenge the growing influence of the enemy is the only thing that can intervene. We are blessed to know that even when the enemy comes in like a flood; the Spirit of the Lord will always be 1 million steps ahead, raising the standard of the Kingdom. Let us call on God today for His supernatural intervention. Happy Praying. PRAYER REQUESTS FOR INDIVIDUAL MINISTRIES Mission - Asia 2000, Pray for: 1. Yvonne & Gretna Conradie that God would protect them and show His favour over them. They have also asked us to pray for their burden for the Philippines, particularly in provinces with a greater Muslim presence. They want to see more Good News activity among the Muslim peoples. 2. Christians in the area’s affected by earthquakes and other natural elements – so that people will be challenged in their hearts to turn to Jesus. 3. God’s provision for the many workers they support.
