I've been promising myself (and others) that I would get some prayer requests up here in advance so you can start praying (hint hint).
In no particular order, here are some prayer requests for this year's program.
- The man who owns the land where we conduct the program to let us use it again this year
- 5000 to come
- A good, annoited speaker
- Pray that the Gospel would go forth with power and Satan would not be allowed to snatch away the good seeds.
- Pray for the salvation of souls. We are praying that we would have at least 100 people to follow up with (salvation, prayer, questions) after the program.
- Protection against Satanic attacks in all areas
- Pray that every evil scheme planned against us will be destroyed
- Protection, safety and health for all involved
- A strong involvement by our church members
- Unity for everyone involved and also between us and the other churches and believers in the city
- Finances: Budget is $4000
- We need 5000 New Testaments in Hindi, Gujarati and English (Pray that we can get them freely)
- Pray for every special performance in the program to be done with excellence and purpose (we have performances by our school children, church youth, ladies, etc...)
- The school students, teachers, staff and parents who are involved and are not believers
- Everything to get done in a timely matter and without undue stress
- Pray for the presence of God to be with us and working through us
* I'm sure there is more...
