Thank you for praying!
Thank you for praying about our presence at the Keswick Convention this year. Thank you especially if you said “Hello” to us at Base Camp, or attended one of our receptions. Please keep praying that more people will hear about Langham and partner with us to equip the next generation of Bible teachers around the world.
Pray for the Latin American Bible Commentary exhibiting in Miami this weekend
The Latin American Bible Commentary (LABC) is being exhibited at ‘Expolit’, a Christian booksellers’ festival in Miami, till Sunday. Ian Darke, the project coordinator, is pictured left holding a copy of the resource (called Comentario Bíblico Contemporáneo). Expolit, which has been running for nearly 30 years, brings together Latin American Christian booksellers, distributors and publishers. The Old Testament editor of the LABC, Langham Scholar Milton Acosta, gave a workshop at Expolit today, based on using the commentary.
Please pray that many people will visit the stand and acquire the LABC at a reduced price.
Pray also that many will have been impacted by Milton’s workshop and that this resource will transform preaching in Latin America.
Langham Preaching’s work in Western Europe is slow, and can be discouraging because numbers involved in events are often low.
Please pray for:
– the regional coordinator there, Ewald Ring, who is excited that the Word of God is shaping churches as a result of Langham Preaching seminars.
– Ewald as he organises training and invests in other church leaders.
Read Ewald’s testimony and more about Langham Preaching’s work in Western Europe.
Langham Scholar Dr César Lopes is now the programme director for online education at a Bible college in São Paulo. Find out why studying online is crucial for church leaders living in Brazil, which is a large country.
Please pray for Dr Lopes, that he would be able to partner with local churches and direct the course well.
Pray also that the course will be accredited with the Brazilian Ministry of Education.
A prayer to use in your church service, prayer meeting, home group or individually:
We pray for the Latin American Bible Commentary, exhibiting in the US this weekend. We pray that many believers across Latin America will get hold of and use this commentary.
God of grace, we lift to you Langham Preaching’s work in Western Europe. We pray that you would encourage your servant Ewald Ring and bless his ministry in Austria and beyond.
Loving Lord, please be with Dr César Lopes as he directs online education in Brazil. We pray that the course will be accredited soon and that even more people across Brazil will be trained through this programme.
And finally Lord, please bless the upcoming Vision Events in Belfast and Edinburgh. We pray that many will be inspired and encouraged about Langham’s work around the world.
In your precious son Jesus Christ’s name,
