The landscape of our lives seems full of loss and angst these days. There is much to tug on our hearts in 2020. But Yahweh, we’re grateful for Your brilliant joy that strengthens us. We choose to put our trust in You, Eternal One. Please shine through us into the darkness and fill us with Your valiant courage. We praise You!

Please pray for the people of Nagorno-Karabakh (mostly Armenians) who are caught in the bloody crossfire of conflict and in need of winter relief supplies. Pray for Samaritan’s Purse (SP) as they deliver boots, coats, gloves, socks, and thermal underwear that thousands need to survive in the Caucasus mountains, because they had to flee their homes. Pray also for MAF pilot Rick Emenaker who is heading up logistics for SP in Armenia, on loan from the MAF Global Disaster Response team.
