August Prayer Focus

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10

“So do no fear, for I am with you…” the very presence of God protects us from fear and worry. Presence is such a big part of the care healthcare workers give. As committed Christians, they are bringing something of Jesus to each bedside and into each home with them.

Pray for the process of distributing coronavirus vaccinations particularly where there is hesitancy, fear and a prevalence of fake news. Pray for effective campaigns which encourage people to protect themselves and their communities by getting vaccinated.

In Malawi, we pray that the school year is able to continue amid covid disruptions. Please pray for girls affected by unplanned pregnancy and early marriage as a result of previous school closures and covid economic pressures.

Give thanks for Euan McIntyre our new Fundraising Manager from CrossReach and pray he settles quickly at EMMS International.

We give thanks for the announcement that over £3million was raised during the Every Girl Matters appeal. Pray for the final planning for the UK Aid Match funded Sunita project in Nepal which will now start in April 2022.

Please Pray for the Safeguarding committee at EMMS International and for our partners all working to ensure vulnerable adults and children are protected and well cared for. Give thanks for the Finance Committee at EMMS International working hard to steward all funds wisely for the benefit of those who are dealing with sickness and poverty.
