Please pray that Borana people will be growing in their knowledge of the Word of God, built up in their most holy faith, sharing the gospel with their neighbors, families and friends. Pray that as more and more people come to faith in Christ, the decades of tribal warfare with other nomadic peoples will become a thing of the past. May Christ be their peace.
Praise the Lord for the Borana reproducing, Christ-Centered churches. Pray that during this Christmas season new believers will be brought into the fold, new congregations will be planted, and the Holy Spirit will give power to all for witnessing of the grace of God in sending His Son to earth.
Borana Christians have found that sharing the Word of God, whether read or heard, is bringing people to faith in Christ, and helping believers grow strong in their faith. Please pray that December will be a season when the Scriptures are widely read, heard, believed and followed, resulting in great growth and new congregations being established.
Praise the Lord that the Borana who love Jesus Christ are eager to share His salvation with others! Pray for the multiplication of the Borana churches, and that the leaders will be equipped and strengthened to lead their people in ways that honor the Savior.
The Borana believers are strategically spreading God’s Word to new villages in their tribe. The church is growing, and concern for other tribes who live near them is growing. Perhaps there will be Borana believers who will decide to cross cultures to the Orma and share the gospel among them, too. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to speed the rapid growth of the Borana church, and to make them effective witnesses to others who still are without Christ.
A Borana man has a burden for unreached groups. He is studying the Bible in order to be equipped for ministry. Pray for the Holy Spirit to keep him tender in heart and that he will be greatly used to reach the lost for Christ.
There are a number of Borana pastors and evangelists who have a passion to evangelize those villages where people do not yet have a local church. Please pray for the Spirit to use them mightily to bring people to Christ and foster Christ-centered churches.
On Apr 25, 2018 you prayed for this request: “Please pray that the Borana believers will continue to share the gospel in villages where Christ is not yet known. Pray for this wonderful movement of the Spirit that is causing more and more churches to spring up among the Borana. Pray that even the Islamic leaders who are trying to squelch the work of evangelism will be saved.” And God answered: “In March 2018 one young man graduated from Bible School and is now Pastoring 1 church + two outreach points about 40 kilometers from Moyale town. A second Borana man will graduate in March 2019 and become the associate pastor of AIC Moyale Town with a lot of local responsibility as Pastor Bonaya is the Assistant Bishop of Marsabit.” Praise the Lord.
Please pray that the Borana believers will be “salt and light” in the communities where they live, bringing people to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and King. Pray that they will be the fragrance of Christ to those who are perishing and those who are being saved.
Pray for the Lord to continue to raise up Borana pastors and evangelists who can carry the message of Christ to remote villages. Pray for the power of Islam to be broken and that the Borana people will be set free to follow Christ Jesus. Pray for protection for those who live in dangerous situations.
