February Missionary Prayer Focus

 
  • Harmon and Cindy Schmelzenbach, serving in Melanesia: Pray with us that God would continue to draw our team together with clarity around the goals that God has given us to accomplish, both as our individual group and with our broader church.
Swaziland Schools
  In the early 1900s, Nazarene missionaries were sent to manage the schools in Swaziland and to teach in the classrooms. Today, there are 42 Nazarene schools in Swaziland, all financially supported by the Swazi government but still led and managed by the church. Pray for the faculty, students, and staff at the 36 primary schools, 5 high schools, and 1 university.
Ways to Pray for Your Pastors Today
 

Here is a simple prayer plan from the USA/Canada Region that you can use in praying for all of our pastors around the world:

  • Personal spiritual growth. Pray that pastors would not get distracted from priority #1— their own relationship with God.
  • Marital protection. It’s tough to be a ministry couple. Pray that they will grow together in love, companionship, and the joy of the call to ministry.
  • Pastor as Parent. Pray for your pastors’ family relationships and their families.
  • Financially. Pray that God will meet their needs and open doors for education, seminars, or other blessings.
  • God’s Word. Wisdom on teaching the Word and leading you and others into a more fulfilling relationship with Christ.
  • Encouragement. A pastor is always putting himself or herself on the line for the sake of the gospel, it can be spiritually exhausting. Ask God to bring encouragers alongside your pastor.
  • Energy to live out the call and rest when the day is done.
 
HEALTH RELATED REQUESTS
Radcliffe Parents – UPDATE
 

Missionaries Jim and Kathy Radcliffe will be traveling from Papua New Guinea to the USA to be with his father, David, and her mother, Garnet, as they each deal with cancer. Pray for traveling mercies and for God to put His healing touch on their parents.

  • Kathy's mom, Garnet, is recovering from her first chemo treatment side effects. Her next treatment date is Feb. 22. She remains in good spirits and hopes to attend church this Sunday.
  • Rev. David Radcliffe has been hospitalized with possible pneumonia and other complications of his cancer and treatments and weakened condition. He is still being evaluated in Mount Vernon, Ohio.

God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil.

—Mother Teresa
