THIS WEEK WE'RE PRAYING FOR
Lack of water, fertile land, and natural resources contribute to staggering unemployment rates and significant poverty. The Christian presence is very small and 0.1% of the population is evangelical. There is almost certain persecution of anyone even considering converting to Christianity.
God, I pray for continued peace, stability, economic development, and growth of the Christian Church in Djibouti. I dare to ask that all believers in the nation, including those serving on the U.S. military base, would be effective witnesses for Christ. In Jesus' Name, amen.
Susceptibility to hurricanes, economic over-dependency on the export of bananas, limited infrastructure, and poverty are struggles for Dominica. The Catholic Church is 60% of the population, but largely nominal.
Lord, I lift up Dominica to You and dare to ask for an awakening in the Catholic Church. Raise up godly leaders to point others to a true intimate relationship with You, Father. Provide the resources for this small island nation to grow economically and recover quickly following tropical storms and hurricanes. 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
