Prayer Points Oct-Nov 2021

Giving Thanks:

There is so much to be thankful for. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Josh’s 2 year old son who ingested some of his mum’s medicine and had to go to hospital, recovered well and went home safe and well by the power of prayer!
  • Baby Charlotte, born safely on 22 October after various health scares and covid for her Mummy in the last few months. 
  • Caroline who was thankful for our prayers when she was frightened about eye surgery on her one good eye. The doctors decided to observe rather than rush to risky surgery and she can see well enough to move around.
  • Recovery from Covid for Bethanne’s whole family.
  • Testimonies of the way the Lord has encouraged people in their discipleship through the Beacon of Hope.
  • William and Krysta arrived safely in Texas and are seeing the Lord’s favour on their ministry.
  • Derik led a three-hour class at Sprig Arbor University talking about Inspire bands.
  • Barbara, out of hospital and home recovering from a series of seizures, please keep praying. 
  • Online courses for the School of Discipleship planned through to the end of 2022. 
  • “I am just so thankful for this amazing powerhouse of prayer (in the Prayer Message Group and Prayer Bowl) across the continents and time zones. That someone is always awake somewhere to pray! And also someone is always awake somewhere to read and share the testimonies of Gods goodness and miracle working in lives too! May we know God is faithful and His mercies are new every morning”

    • Neill under treatment for cancer in his eye, and his wife Andrea with a terminal cancer currently remission. 
    • Mary, Inspire Missioner in Ukraine struggling with ill health
    • Maximilian and Daniela, “We need a miracle. The devil is mighty, but God is Almighty! After stumbling through every stage of a story like the book of Job for many years, Maximilian is still longing to get to the last chapter where it says that his final years were more blessed than his former years.According to our very engaged doctor who is visiting Maximilian regularly now (with vitamin C and B infusions) it is a thrust of Polineuropathy and we are moving on thin ice. The other day our doctor even made an unannounced and unexpected visit at 9pm. While the fever went down Maximilian is feeling worse than before because of extreme sweating and freezing with still sleepless nights. It is extremely exhausting for both of us. There are many prayers but it would be good if the Lord would answer them soon. How long, O Lord? “
    • Timothy, “The simple prayer is for Timothy’s complete and forever healing. Maybe that’s already happened, and we just don’t see it yet? Or perhaps there are things to be done in the medical realm first. Could you pray for us please for discernment for Timothy, us, and our team, to know the right way forward.”
