Praise for many opportunities during Ramadan to engage our friends in their homes here.
Prayer –” Lord, please send many volunteers who are committed to ongoing relationships with local Muslim people, who have requested help with English, citizenship studies, and homework.” Opportunities abound, volunteers are needed.
Please pray for Somali Christians as they face loneliness, depression and a lot of pressure to revert to Islam by their Muslim relatives. Some also wrestle with addictions, and other temptations. Pray that their witness would be evident and strong in word and in deed, and that they wouldn’t give up.
Pray also for our Somali friend Naomi (pseudonym) to grab hold of Jesus’ death and resurrection in her life, and not to be afraid to stand up for Jesus.
