Pray and Seek

As we pray God moves into action. Not, because He cannot do it without us, but because the Almighty One loves to create with His children. The situation of refugees and migrants across the world often seems hopeless and never-ending, but if we have had the smallest glimpse into the heart of God, we know that His heart aches for them and He is devoted to the foreigner and stranger in our lands. Let's be the ones who respond to God's heart and pray full of faith. 
 

"The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God."
- Psalm 14:2

This month we want to invite you to pray different locations where we serve among refugees. In prayer we come alongside those working long-term and carry the dreams God has for the different places and people. And we position our hearts, wide open for God to speak however He wants to. 

Lesvos, Greece

  • thank the Lord for 892 YWAM volunteers who worked in the camp from November 2015 to September 2017 (soon it will be 1000!)
  • pray for a continued release of committed workers who can impact the people in the camp and across the island with the gospel
  • pray for provision of winter cloths, baby diapers and other resources needed as winter draws near
