Today marks the 37th year of the inauguration of the Foundation. Bless the Lord who has been upholding CMF by His righteous hand and has not allowed her light to be put off. Worship the Lord for the many good things He has done for us according to His compassion and many kindness(Isaiah63:7).Praise God for everyone He has used and is still using to partner with Him under the umbrella of CMF in the pursuit of making disciples among the Least-Reached People Groups. Plead for God’s mercy and for forgiveness of our transgressions. Pray that the Lord would purify and refine us so that our lives and service would be pleasing and acceptable to Him (Mal 3: 3-4). Ask God to give us room so that we would flourish in the land where we are placed and located. (Gen 26:22).
CMF INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL MEETING: Today is the first full day of the ICM. Thank the Lord for the journey mercies granted to all our members who have arrived. Our deliberations today will be in the context of the 37th Anniversary. Pray that the Lord will rekindle in us the same passion, zeal, commitment, and focus with which the CMF was launched 37 years ago. Pray for a fresh unction and clear understanding of God’s mind and the direction into which He is leading us as CMF approaches the 40th anniversary landmark.
MISSIONARIES– Thank God for preserving all the missionaries and their families. Pray that God should help the missionaries to be devoted to sound doctrine in building up their members to be conformed to the image of Christ. Receive grace for them to be devoted to prayer, preaching and teaching of God’s word. Pray that lasting fruits will come out of their labours. Ask God to use all situations to work out for their good.
