April Prayer Focus


Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. - John 11 25-26

Through this Easter season, we are reflecting on the words of the well-known hymn, "Great is thy faithfulness". Verse by verse, it gives us assurance of God's unfailing kindness and compassion towards us. All made possible through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of His son, Jesus Christ.

In times of uncertainty, we can find strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. And as we receive God's richest blessings - all mine, and ten thousand beside - we are resourced to go out and bless others.

  1. We give thanks for the launch of the Sunita project in Nepal. It represents a landmark on a long journey to provide quality care at or close to home for those in Nepal with life-limiting illnesses. It's also a testament to the prayerful generosity of many who have given to make this project a reality.

  2. We give thanks that building works are now underway at Duncan Hospital for a brand new nursing college. We pray that the building works will continue smoothly on this facility that will train generations of healthcare workers in North India.

  3. We continue to pray for those who are counting the cost of recent natural disasters. In particular, we pray for Malawi in the wake of Cyclone Ana and subsequent tropical storms. These storms have been devastating in their immediate impact, but the loss will be felt for months to come as a result of destroyed crops and livelihoods.

  4. We give thanks for Mary Robertson's time with us at EMMS International and her massive commitment to showing that every life matters. As she retires, we pray for direction and fruitfulness for her in this new season of life.
