Priorities for Prayer
- Monday, November 25
Pray for the people of the Philippines who are suffering following Typhoon Haiyan.
- Tuesday, November 26
Lift up MAF staff members John Woodberry and Dave Forney who are currently in the Philippines. They have partnered with a team from New Tribes Mission to assist remote islands in the western Philippines that are in desperate need following the typhoon. Pray that the disaster response team will be blessed with wisdom, fortitude, safety, and a spirit of compassion. Learn more here.
- Wednesday, November 27
Pray for the pilots from New Tribes Mission that are delivering relief supplies and performing survey fights to identify areas in need. MAF staff are providing logistics support to their efforts.
- Thursday, November 28
Give thanks for the church group on the island of Cuyo in the Philippines that has been putting together “family packs” to help those suffering on other islands. Each “family pack” contains rice and canned meat to feed a family of six or seven for one or two days.
- Friday, November 29
The church building has been mostly destroyed on the island of Concepcion in the Philippines. However, the pews and alter still remain. Pray that the people of the island will be able to rebuild the church structure, as well as their homes and lives.
- Saturday, November 30
We praise God for the work being done by MAF-Learning Technologies throughout Costa Rica and other countries in Latin America. Pray that they may be a testimony to all they serve.
- Sunday, December 1
We give thanks for the foundations and charitable trusts that support MAF’s life-changing work. It is a privilege to work with these fellow servants—to learn of their heart for the Lord and their commitment to making the world a better place.
