On fourth Sundays we pray for the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the world. Today we're praying especially for our special relationships with missionaries here at Zion.
Please pray for Pastor John Dovinh who is currently in Des Moines. Please pray for God's continued provision so he can return to Cambodia. Pray for his teaching and leadership of Vietnamese speaking Christians and converts.
Please pray for the Mhezi Team as they continue to minister and partner with our sister congregations in the Mhezi Parish.
Please pray for Pastor Jordan Long, president of the Lutheran Church of South Sudan, Pray for the spread of the Word of God throughout South Sudan and through the refugee camps where many people hunger and thirst for God. Pray that supporters in the USA can be found to help fund the meager salaries of pastors and evangelists who spread the word.
Pray for Pastor Brad Miller, who has been traveling throughout the year to teach and encourage congregations, seminarians, pastors and evangelists.
Pray for Karim Jawda who continues to minister to Iraqi and Syrian refugees relocating to Iowa.
Prayers for neighborhood Churches
Our prayer focus this week is First Assembly of God. First Assembly, much like Zion has a had a huge heart for Community and the Nations. Pastor Dave Beroth is lead pastor and has a vision to meet the needs of indigenous people groups in Des Moines. Pray for the outreach and the barriers that continue to challenge ministry to an ever changing demographic. Pray for God's favor, strategy and influence for 1st Assembly. Ask God for continued partnerships with other works cross denominationally. Pray also for God's abundant provision into all that this church is doing in our city.
