Vision 119- Prayer - Pray for a Spiritual Breakthrough!

Reformation Day Prayer Bulletin #39

"Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we trust in the Name of the Lord our God."

      Taiwan is a prosperous country of twenty-three million people.  But it is steeped in idolatry and deep spiritual darkness.  For this reason SEND Taiwan is asking God to call 119 workers to plant churches in sixty cities along old Route 1 and Route 19 in western, central Taiwan.  Only God can penetrate the darkness; only God can regenerate dead, darkened hearts.  That is why we must trust in the Name of Yahweh our God.
     Praise God for Sandy who this past October 19 during a Bible study made a decision to trust Christ alone.  Pray for her growth, her willingness to identify with the Lord and His people through baptism, and her ability to be a witness to her family and friends.
     Praise God the Holy Spirit is working in the lives of students in grades 1-9 in Daxicuo.  Pray that many of them will respond to the Spirit's promptings to trust Christ alone.  Pray that God will spread revival throughout the various schools in this area.
     Miaoli is a needy area. Ask God to give clear direction where to begin outreach in this area.
     Pray for relationships to be built through the teaching of English at Tian Wei Middle School on Saturdays.  Pray also for Living Water Church for wisdom in their planning and grace to follow through with Saturday afternoon teaching seminars and activities to reach out to adults in Tian Wei.
     Praise God for the good relationship the Dalin team has with the school principal and staff of San He Elementary School. English classes are being held for students in Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-6. Pray that God would honor this endeavor and through this teaching bring spiritual fruit.
     A Sunday morning Sunday school is being held for the students who wish to come. Pray that God would sovereignly cause many students to come, that they would be attentive to the teaching of the Word, that through the Holy Spirit they would understand the Gospel, and that they would respond to the Gospel invitation.
     Pray that Good Neighbor Church would continue to reach out to the people of Dalin.  The church has been meeting in rented facilities but the lease will expire in January.  Ask God to provide an even more suitable place for service gatherings.
     About twenty years ago SEND I. recognized that God was greatly at work in Russia and Ukraine. It was Harvest Time! It was time to call forth workers.  It was time to gather the harvest and to establish vibrant churches.  Please, please ask God for a Harvest Time in Taiwan.
May we also ask you to go to the Throne of Grace and in the Name of the Lord our God to ask Him to do a spiritual work in Taiwan beyond our wildest imagination?
