THIS WEEK WE'RE PRAYING FOR
Poverty, illiteracy, AIDS, and frequent droughts significantly impact Ethiopia. Tension with neighboring countries, Eritrea and Somalia, and the growing influence and presence of Islam place the people of Ethiopia in need of genuine peace and the hope of the Living God.
God, I ask that You would bring about economic development and relief from the AIDS crisis in Ethiopia. Open the eyes of the Church to the increasing Islamic activity in the nation and bring peace and raise up Godly leaders to be effective and fruitful in training more Christian leaders throughout the country. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
Political stability is desperately needed, as is fairness to an Indian minority which is discriminated against. The established churches have largely supported the government, resulting in discrediting the message of the Gospel. Alcoholism and broken homes plague the society.
Lord, I pray for revival in the churches of Fiji, and for the Church to lead the way in mandating fairness for all people. Raise up Godly leaders and equip them for effective evangelism to Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims in their nation. Bring healing to the cycle of broken homes in the country. 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
