Today’s Prayer Target
November 21, 2017
Please pray for the 850 listener clubs throughout Malawi, with 15-30 people in each group. It’s not easy for the Yao of Malawi – formerly hard-to-reach Muslims – to commit to following Jesus, but many are doing just that after hearing the Good News. Pray for the broadcasts that are making a powerful influence on their lives, as well as the “talking Bibles,” which is what they call the radios they receive. Pray for a stronger walk with the Lord, as they continue to tune into our broadcasts.

From the President
November 2017 Prayer Target
“Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke them. Then He gave them to the disciples to set before the people. They all ate and were satisfied…” (Luke 9:16–17a)
Thankfulness is an integral part of our walk with God. Luke describes the actions Jesus takes in feeding a multitude of people with just a small amount of food and the miracle that followed. But before Jesus does anything else, He looks up to our Father in heaven and gives thanks for the provision of the loaves and fish. When we express our thanks, we are intentionally remembering how God has provided for us. Thankfulness strengthens our trust that God will continue to answer our prayers.
Whether it’s asking for wisdom for a difficult situation, or to experience more of God’s presence, or for physical needs like safety and enough food to eat, or any of the many requests we place before the Lord, we can trust that, just like the multitude that day who “all ate and were satisfied,” our Father will meet us at the point of our needs.
During this season of Thanksgiving, let’s remember the Lord’s provision in the past and be strengthened in our trust that God is answering our prayers today. Thank you for your faithful ministry partnership!
Until all have heard,
