Without prayer we can accomplish nothing! We need your prayers for Love Guatemala every month but we have set aside May to pray and continue to ask God for big things here in Guatemala. Will you pray with us? I have been challenging the students in our schools this week with this passage from Mark 11:22-24. 22 Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. 23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. Will you pray in faith for God to do big things? If so I would like to challenge you to a few things specifically.
- Will you pray for at least 1 hr per week for the remaining weeks of May?
- Will you fast in some sort of way for the last day of May? This is Friday May 31st.
Here are some specific ways you can be praying:
- For spiritual openness in all of the students and families connected to the schools.
- For the health of Carlos & Thelma
- For $9,000 needed to purchase land (Read more about that here)
- That the rest of students in the schools will get sponsored (Check out sponsorship program here)
- Wisdom for direction as we move forward in ministry
- Teachers – wisdom in teaching/discipling students
- Wisdom for Ben/Jennifer & Carlos/Thelma as they lead the ministry in Guatemala
- Health and safety of all of our students and their families
