The Gift of Prayer

Recently, a monthly prayer group was formed in Lexington, KY to specifically pray for the school, children and staff. After relaying this news to Ananthi in an email, I received a remarkable reply. Ananthi explained that she was attending a meeting in Central India when she received my e-mail. While at the meeting, she had learned there was a prayer room in the building where the meeting was being held. When time allowed, Ananthi slipped away and found her way to the room of prayer. Upon entering, she found a man with an open Bible on his knees. He rose and explained to Ananthi that he was praying for a Christian ministry in India that prays 24 hours a day for the work of the ministry. Ananthi writes, “I was thrilled and thought for a moment that if we had one like this, the ministry and the children would flourish!”

Ananthi was very encouraged about our new prayer group, but her statement made me think, “What would happen if more people consistently prayed for the Good Samaritan School?” Remembering that India is #15 on the list of countries in which Christians are most persecuted, I was reminded of the importance of consistently praying for the school, the teachers and staff, the children, and Ananthi. Each month I look forward to gathering with others in my Lexington, KY home to intercede on behalf of the work of the Good Samaritan School. I keep a list of prayer requests on my bedside table to remind me to pray each night for the work being done in India.

Please join me in lifting up the Good Samaritan School, starting with these prayer requests:

    1. *Praise God for the amazing work He has done and continues to do through the school.
    1. *Ask that God would help the students excel in their studies.
    1. *Request that God would fill the teachers and staff with wisdom and insight as they teach.
    1. *Pray for protection from accidents, disease and harm for the students, their families, and the teachers/staff.
    1. *Request that God continue to make financial provision for the school.
    1. *Ask that each month there will be an increase in the number of children sponsored.

    and thankful.            Colossians 4:2
