Prayer Points week beginning 1st March
Weekly Prayer Points
Please pray for Zimbabwe, where people are struggling to feed their families in the midst of a huge drought. Although in some parts of the country it has finally begun to rain, the damage has already been done. Please pray that it’s not too late for crops and livestock to recover; for our local partners as they respond to this crisis; and for continued rain.
As the Coronavirus spreads it is affecting the work of our local partners in east and southeast Asia. They are unable to make plans; travel restrictions mean it is hard to reach communities in need or plan training events. Please pray for a vaccine to be found, healing for the sick and provision for those in poverty who are becoming more marginalised by restrictions in place.
Pray for the people who are referred to the Foodbank Centres, that through the kindness shown by the volunteers in listening, and giving food, something of God’s love will be experienced.
Pray that everyone coming to Foodbank will be seen through Jesus’ eyes.
Give thanks for the overwhelming generosity of people who respond to various appeals for food, without which Foodbank wouldn’t be able to exist.
Lift up the OMF South Africa team, asking God to give them wisdom as they journey with several enquirers and applicants. Many of them do not speak English as their first language, so miscommunications can occur. Pray for the “roadblocks” experienced with some applicants to be removed.
