I am part of a social justice team that is making a mission trip to Ghana . We are partnering with IJM and GlobeServe there to help change minds and hearts of the boatmasters on Lake Volta where they are using child slaves to work in the fishing trade. Many of these boatmasters claim to be Christian, yet they are taking children as young as 8 as slaves, lying to these kids’ families that they will be taken care of, given schooling, etc.
We need prayers for a TRUE change in hearts for these boatmasters and forgiveness of their sins, that they may be moved to let these children go;
prayers that the children will be set free, not just from slavery but from the pain and trauma that they have experienced when they are rescued from the lake;
prayers for the safety of the team traveling there, both physically and spiritually; and
prayers for me specifically as I try to determine if God wants me on this trip NOW, or if I am to support it as a lead for a stay-and-pray team here in the States instead
Thank you for praying!
To submit a prayer request … click on the orange button, fill in the fields and submit. Your personal details will remain confidential and will never be displayed or shared.
Your prayer request will then be vetted by one of our team, usually within 24 hrs. Remember it will be seen by others (albeit anonymously) so keep the language and content appropriate.
Once approved, your prayer request will appear on the site. People will indicate that they’ve prayed for you by clicking the prayer icon on your prayer request. They can leave comments (which you can later view) by clicking on the comment icon. The counters will tell you how many people have prayed for you or left words of encouragement.
And for each prayer request that you leave, please pray for at least 3 other people and leave at least one word of encouragement.
The only sort of prayer the Bible teaches about is the sort that has powerful results!
The Lord bless you heaps!!!
