Prayer for our Teams

Every Monday our available team members across the US, Nigeria, and Ethiopia (and sometimes other locations as they travel) call in, share prayer requests, and lift one another up!

We would like to share those prayer requests with you and ask you, as you feel led, to lift us up as well!

Nigeria:

  • There are difficulties with our communication with the ERCC (an important partner denomination). Pray that we can find another contact person (our current contact is the very busy head of the denomination).
  • March 19th, there will be a training in Gindiri Theological Seminary! There are 150 students signed up. Pray for the training; that they will use the training effectively after they graduate and be blessed.
  • March 30th, Peter and Rick will lead a training with prison fellowship in Lagos.
  • We have the potential for a training in Abuja through our friend and board member Daniel Bako
  • Prayer for the change of FFICM’s official name in Nigeria to go through.
