THIS WEEK WE'RE PRAYING FOR
The Church in Israel is challenged by constant threats from surrounding nations and terrorist groups, continual uncertainties, a small Christian and evangelical presence, strong influence from ultra-orthodox Jews, and anti conversion laws.
Heavenly Father, I pray for peace and stability for Israel and the whole region. I dare to ask that terrorist organizations would lose their influence. May the Church represent Christ well and equip leaders to spread the Good News. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
The Roman Catholic Church is largely a cultural influence rather than a spiritual one as few Italian Catholics are faithful in their practice. Occultism and secularism are prominent throughout the nation, and organized crime remains a problem. There is a small evangelical population, and most Italians are indifferent to the Gospel.
Lord, bring nation-wide revival to Italy, causing many to turn to You and Your Word for answers to faith and life. I ask that corruption would be exposed in business, government, and even the Church, but that You would rebuild them with leaders of integrity. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM JIMMY
For two years, we have joined together weekly to pray for the needs of every nation in the world. Thank you for being so faithful! Our focus has been the advance of the Gospel to see the glory of God revealed and known throughout every nation. Our "prayer trip around the world" was a first for me. The discipline of praying for the nations has been enriching. I know our prayers have been effective in ways we may never know on this side of heaven.
The Bible teaches us to "pray without ceasing," so we want to continue to pray for nations. Moving forward, we're launching a brand new, weekly message called Dare to Ask God that will inspire you, deepen your intimacy with God, grow your leadership skills, challenge you to pray for the nations, and connect you with the ILI leaders around the world. It will be a joy to continue praying with you, and see what God will do in the nations as we “Dare to Ask!”
For His glory,
ILI International Director
