Latest prayer points

Central African Republic
Increased interest for translations despite challenges: Pray for resolution of the issues that have brought insecurity to the Central African Republic for the last eight years. Bible translation into the country’s 60+ languages is also impacted: pray for safe transportation and distribution of three new New Testaments this year, and for the three further teams of local translators working to complete. Many more language communities are now also interested in having Bible translations; pray that ways will be found to facilitate translation and the production of print and digital versions in these languages.  (SIL International - May 2021)
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Working for peace amidst war and disease: Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is a troubled area. New cases of both Ebola and Covid-19 are a regular occurrence, and rebel activity continues with massacres in villages and vehicles set on fire. Refugees arrive each day and need homes, food and security. Connectivity is poor. Life is fragile. Pray for this region and for wisdom and courage for Langham's Preaching Co-ordinator Bishop Isesomo as he offers leadership and works for peace in the name of Jesus. (Langham Partnership UK & Ireland - May 2021)
Tanzania
Bringing Jesus to the rural districts in West Tanga: Emmanuel International partner church, Tanzania Assemblies of God, is reaching out to a new area: the rural districts in West Tanga. People here are among the poorest in Tanzania with low literacy and the majority are Muslims. We are assisting the church to reach the community spiritually and physically, while training Edward and Joshua to start ministering. Please pray they will be able to launch into this new area effectively and reach the communities with Jesus’ love. (Emmanuel International - May 2021)
Kenya
Lawyers provide legal aid for prisoners: CLEAR Kenya is a legal aid project meeting the legal needs of those who can’t defend or speak for themselves. They've recently sought to recruit a new paralegal to serve a prison in Kisumu, where prisoners have very little to no access to laptops or phones to talk to lawyers or contact family. Please pray for the prisoners whose cases are not prioritised, and who have been in prison for longer than they should. Pray that Covid cases don’t rise so lawyers can still visit and help those in need. (Lawyers Christian Fellowship - May 2021)
