THIS WEEK WE'RE PRAYING FOR
Roman Catholicism is the state church and the majority of the population regularly attends mass, but there is general lack of understanding of a personal relationship with Jesus. There is a small evangelical presence, but it is growing. Malta is close to Islamic North African nations, which is both a potential negative and also a potential positive for Kingdom impact.
*Pray for the deeply religious majority to gain a living relationship with Christ. Pray for an effective witness to Libyan and Tunisian immigrants. Pray for believers to reach out to those involved in international shipping.
High unemployment, significant poverty, great dependency upon U.S. aid, and the need to import most of their food supply are economic issues for the Marshall Islands. Growing social issues like substance abuse and sexual immorality are symptoms of spiritual issues. Godly, well-trained leaders in the Church are a significant need.
*Pray for churches to purposely disciple young believers to spiritual maturity. Pray for protection from cults and false religions attempting to deceive the unaware. Pray for those whose lives have been devastated by the effects of nuclear testing to learn the freedom of Godly forgiveness.

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
