I’m speaking to you as dear friends. Don’t be bluffed into silence or insincerity by the threats of religious bullies. True, they can kill you, but then what can they do? There’s nothing they can do to your soul, your core being. Save your fear for God, who holds your entire life—body and soul—in his hands.
— Luke 12:4-5 MSG
Priorities for Prayer
Monday, May 29
Pray for MAF families to live in the fear of the Lord, trusting Him whole-heartedly, and living with articulate boldness, and compassionate integrity.
Tuesday, May 30
Ask the Lord to enable the MAF Tech teams (Eurasia, Asia/Pacific, and the Americas) who are using a wide-range of information technology strategies through a network of partnerships so that isolated people can discover the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Wednesday, May 31
Pray for the MAF team in western Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) during this season of change (new missionary families arriving, housing repairs and hangar renovations, furloughs, housing changes). May God keep them focused on what is really important and give them the strength they need to adjust gracefully.
Thursday, June 1
Pray that MAF would be given favor in the eyes of civil aviation and government agencies in every country where we serve.
Friday, June 2
Lift up Brian and Christy Ward who serve in Papua New Guinea. As they are settling in and learning the language, they are already involved in digital Bible distribution, local pastor training, and showing the “JESUS” Film.
Saturday, June 3
Praise God that Pak Yesaya survived being attacked by a large crocodile in Papua, Indonesia. He was transported by MAF to receive good medical care and now is able to walk with the help of a crutch. MAF pilot—Jeremiah—flew him home to the Namberamo Jungle last week.
Sunday, June 4
Lift up Chuck and Susan Weatherstone who have served with MAF for over 30 years as a pilot/mechanic family in Africa and Latin America. Currently, they are learning the new role of MAF mobilizers for the southeastern region of the US.
