Pray for Your Husband

Pray that your husband will yield his sexual drive to the Lord and practice self control. Pray that your sexual intimacy together will be fresh, positive, and a reflection of selfless love. (Prov. 5:15, 18; 1 Cor. 7:3; Song of Solomon 7:10)


Pray for Your Wife

Pray that she will be a woman of prayer and worship, and that she will lead by example—teaching women how to walk in a close relationship with the Father. (1 Thes. 5:17; Acts 1:14a; Mark 1:35; Matt. 4:10; Titus 2:4-5)


Pray for Your Children

Courage—”May my children always be strong and courageous in their character. (Deut. 31:6)


Pray for Your Singleness

May the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. (Hebrews 13:20–21)

Use me and my gifts to make your name great in the world. I want my life to count for the mission you have given us. I want it to count today, even while I am still young and single. Fill me with ambition, creativity, and selflessness for the sake of your glory.


Pray for Unbelievers

Pray for a burden to plead for their souls. Paul was willing to tell the church at Rome of his great longing to see the salvation of the lost. Do you share this deep longing? Pray that God would give you a great burden for souls. “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved” (Romans 10:1).

Prayercast

Answer to Prayer

Aymara and Quechua peoples, who date back to pre-Inca times, have both experienced major church growth in their midst, and spiritual responsiveness seems to be increasing.

Challenge for Prayer

Evangelical Christians are growing in number and in influence, but face many challenges. Low literacy levels, lack of biblical knowledge and limited discipleship opportunities give rise to theological error and moral failure. There is a great need to raise the standard of discipleship. The Association of Evangelicals (ANDEB), a major fellowship link for churches, is committed to widespread prayer and unity. Pray for these to be achieved and for believers to increase both in quantity and quality. Some other evangelical goals are:

a) For Bolivia to become at least 30% evangelical. While growth is impressive, this goal is still some way off from being achieved.

b) Increased mission sending. Bolivia’s sending has increased significantly, but there is still scope for further growth, especially into cross-cultural missions.

c) Social engagement. Evangelicals must be at the core of Bolivia’s battle against poverty, injustice and vice by demonstrating radical Kingdom values.
