THANKSGIVING and ADC 2018

THANKSGIVING –Thank God for another month and His mercies and grace which have ushered us into this glorious and wonderful month, the month of ADC 2018. Ask for the grace to stay close to the Lord in this new month. Pray that each day in the month will declare the glory of God and fulfil His counsel. ADC 2018 – Pray that God will move in His mightiness so much that people will cry out in genuine repentance and surrender their lives to Christ. Pray for the visitation of God upon the children, teenagers, and youth. Ask God to meet the participants at the point of their needs and have everlasting testimonies to the glory of God. Pray that through the convention, the Lord will expose the giants in the seven mountains of influence, in the six geo-political zones in Nigeria where CMF works as well as in the foreign nations that are challenging us to rise up to confront them.

SINGLE MISSIONARIES

– Receive grace for them to withstand the pressures of work, family members, leadership and places of abode. Pray for grace and power to stand firm against the wiles of the ‘sons and daughters of the land’. Ask that God should enable them to cast their burdens to the Lord so that they would not be burnt out or worn out by their thoughts, concerns and worries. Ask the Lord to reach to them and provide help for them so that they will use this stage of their lives to prepare and plan for their future.

SINGLE MISSIONARIES

SINGLE MISSIONARIES Singleness is one of the stages of life that everyone passes through. Like other stages of life, being single has both strengths and weaknesses. There are lots of opportunities available to singles only, many struggles and challenges are peculiar to them. Strengths of singles: Quick decision making; easy movement and relocation; less distraction, singleness in motive/concentration etc. Struggles/ Challenges: Lack of partner for companionship and encouragement; the enemy uses this as an avenue to launch barrages of attacks (in form of temptations, accusations, depression etc). Singleness may not be acceptable in some culture; this poses a hindrance to their ministries. Pressure (to get married) by family members, friends, colleagues or even leaders. Advancing in age is also a threat. At times, the daughters of Moab (Num 25) and sons of Harmor (Gen 34) may also flaunt themselves to take advantage of them. Leadership may also put pressure on a task which may not be easy to accomplish as a single. Fear of the future, the unknown, etc. – Thank God for all the single missionaries. Thank God for how far He has used them and still equipping them. Pray that God should help them to further take advantage and make good use of the strength and opportunities that are available only to singles, to run faster and reach farther. Pray that God should shield them from people that come into their lives with ulterior motives, (the temptation to sin, false accusation, criticism, etc). Use Psalm 68:6 and Ex 1:21 to pray that God would put them in houses/families of their own.

Ask God to provide a missionary team to work in Kudang, Pastor Amos travels almost 60km weekly to minister at this station.
