Prayer Guide September 2018
In June, we asked you to pray for the Latin American Bible Commentary, a long-running Langham Literature project. We have news!
A short provisional print run was prepared in time for an important book fair for the Spanish-speaking world in Miami last month.
Please pray for final editorial adjustments to the text; for the major challenge of organising, financing and planning the major print-run; and for the distribution of the commentary to every country and region in Latin America.
Langham Partnership has been active in the Big Country through facilitating biblical preaching movements and through providing some PhD scholarships.
There is a desperate need for sound Biblical training in this country, where conditions for Christians are extremely difficult.
Please pray for wisdom as Langham Partnership tries to creatively train preachers and support Scholars. Pray also for Langham as it tries to relate to the Church in a legal way. Read more in this report.
Thank you for praying for Langham Preaching’s Global Leadership Team!
In May, we asked you to pray for Langham Preaching’s Global Leadership Team, as it assembled for important meetings in Barcelona. We specifically asked you to pray for the people involved, for wise decisions to be made and a good time of fellowship.
The Lord has answered our prayers in wonderful ways! Langham Preaching Director Paul Windsor and Associate International Programme Director Ruth Slater said this meeting was “the best one yet”. Representatives from all corners of the globe took part in daily devotions, practical sessions, and team outings. A good time of fellowship was had by all, and key decisions were made, by the grace of God. Thank you for praying!
A prayer to use in your church service, prayer meeting, home group or individually:
“Heavenly Father, we thank you for answering our prayers for progress on the Latin American Bible Commentary. We pray that you would help the team to organise, finance and coordinate the distribution of the commentary when it is completed. We uphold the Church in the Big Country before you, asking for your mercy on that nation. We pray for Langham Scholars who hope to serve there in the future. And finally Lord, we praise you for the outcome of the Langham Preaching Global Leadership Team meeting earlier this year. Please continue to bless Langham Preaching’s work around the world.
In your precious son Jesus Christ’s name,
