The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?
The Lord protects me from danger—so why should I tremble?
Psalm 27:1 NLT

PRAISES:
JESUS Film Praises
 

Give praise as you read just a few of the many testimonies from the JESUS Film Harvest Partners ministry:

  • "The church in Dulag had closed in 2009 for many reasons," said a Filipino team member. "Yet through the JESUS Film ministry, it is being rekindled back to life. The church now makes an impact in the community bringing hope through medical missions, and other compassionate ministries.
  • "I am giving everything I have to God," said Christine, mother of two, in Benin (Africa). "I am happy to have seen the JESUS Film. From what I saw and what I have learned, Christ gave His life to save humanity. I am glad He protects us and gives us His peace and hope, so we can love and serve Him in all we do."
  • "I told the Lord, if He wanted me to see the film, my grandson had to get well," shared a grandmother in Panama. "God is so good! I called my daughter before leaving my house, and she told me my grandson was better. I am a new believer today after seeing the film."

PRAY FOR:
GLOBAL MINISTRY REQUESTS
Help for Migrants
 

The refugee crisis in Europe continues. According to the United Nations, there are more than one million Syrian migrants in Lebanon and about 70 percent of them are below the "extreme" poverty line. The lack of earning power is causing food insecurity among refugees. In the midst of this, Nazarenes are responding by giving generously. Thanks to a partnership with Heart For Lebanon, the funds are greatly increased. For every bag bought, they add two more. Please continue to pray for the refugees and those extending a helping hand. ncm.org/refugees

Deployment, Commissioning, Retirement
 
  • Recently, a new missionary deployed to her field of service and a family is set to depart on February 7 to their area of ministry. Pray for these servants as they make the transition into missionary life.
  • In three weeks, seven missionary families will travel to interview with members of the General Board and the Board of General Superintendents to be considered for global recognition. This recognition is called being commissioned and it is a formal acknowledgement by the Church of the Nazarene of missionaries who have proven themselves in ministry and received recommendation from the region where they currently serve. Pray for these who are preparing to travel to the meetings and as they stand before the church to declare their deep desire to continue serving the Lord as Nazarene missionaries.
  • Also at this year’s General Board meetings, two families will be recognized for their years of service as they prepare to retire. Pray for the soon to be “retirees” as they transition out of missionary service to the next chapter of their lives.
Global Women and Girls Fund
  In an effort to support women and their families through self-help groups, small business creation, vocational training, small-scale farming, literacy education, and other programs, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is helping women and girls see themselves as people who are valuable, capable, and equal because they are made in God’s image. Partnering with local churches around the world, NCM also creates schools that give opportunity for education, life skills, and spiritual guidance in areas that do not traditionally value the importance of education for girls. Pray for the Nazarene who administer these valuable ministries and for the women and girls who participate…may they experience God’s love abundantly.
Janet Miller—UPDATE
  NMI East Ohio District President Mark Miller and his family appreciate the prayers of the church as the search for his aunt, Janet Miller, continues. She went missing on December 24, 2016, and at this point, police say there is nothing more they can do. The family is understandably discouraged. Pray for God to reveal the whereabouts of Janet and for peace for the family as the wait continues.
 
HEALTH-RELATED REQUESTS
Harmon Schmelzenbach Sr.–UPDATE
  Harmon Schmelzenbach Sr.’s son, Harmon Jr., writes: “These past few days have seen significant improvement with dad’s situation. Our family is deeply aware and appreciative of the great army of prayer warriors who have been lifting him before God’s throne! Thank you so very much.”

Praise God for this good news and keep praying for Harmon's complete recovery.

Harmon Sr., and his wife, Beverly, are retired missionaries who served in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Kenya, Ethiopia, and the United States. Harmon Jr., and his family serve on the Asia-Pacific Region.
 
BEREAVEMENT
Family of Paul Alfred Lehman
  It is never easy for missionaries to be literally half-a-world-away when family losses occur. Paul Lehman passed away on January 27. A funeral service was held on January 30 in Michigan. Paul was the grandfather of missionary Lisa Lehman who serves in Thailand. Pray for Lisa and her family as they grieve Paul’s passing.
Family of Vipul Kharat
  Pastor Vipul Kharat was on holiday in his hometown of Buldana, India, when he passed away unexpectedly. Vipul served as pastor of the All Nations Church of the Nazarene in Auckland, New Zealand for the past 23 years. Pray for Vipul’s wife, Suzanne, their son, Sameer, and the congregation at the All Nations Church.
Thank you for praying.

We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.
