Latest prayer points

Pandemic effects on the Roma people: Much of Eastern Europe continues to experience a surge in cases of Covid-19. The hospitals are very stretched and many poor communities, especially the Roma, have been unable to afford medicine. Pray for TEN’s partners who are working amongst these communities as many have had Covid-19 themselves. Pray also for peace on the streets: there have been a number of recent protests against the restrictions and curfews which the Government has imposed – economic lockdown means that many families are unable to earn income, so there is a great deal of restlessness.    (Transform Europe Network (TEN) - May 2021)
Restoration needing following major earthquake: Please continue to pray for Croatia as it gets back on its feet after a major earthquake on 29th December and continuous aftershocks since then. Pray for all those who have lost homes and livelihoods. Pray for the families who were bereaved, or for those who were injured. The churches have been helping many families whose homes were destroyed; please pray for Christians to be able to point people to Jesus, as well as helping in practical ways. (Transform Europe Network (TEN) - May 2021)
Changes to legislation affect evangelical churches: The French parliament has recently passed legislation aimed at "strengthening Republican principles" to make it more difficult for Islamic extremists to spread their influence in France. However, while this is obviously a laudable aim, evangelical churches in France are facing significant administrative and financial hurdles as part of the "collateral damage" of the legislation. Please pray that the legislation will achieve its aim and that the Lord will enable His people to rise to the challenge of meeting the new obstacles. (France Mission - May 2021)
Humanitarian crisis needs prayers for peace and restoration : Four out of five people in Yemen need humanitarian assistance, making it the world’s largest humanitarian crisis of our time. Civil war, economic collapse, and the mass displacement of people have generated a situation that continues to deteriorate and push already exhausted communities to the brink. 20 million people in Yemen cannot access adequate health care, nor do they have enough food to eat, and nearly 18 million people do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities. Please pray for communities in Yemen affected by conflict and displacement. Pray that God will bring peace and restoration to this nation. Please pray for the millions of people in need of food and clean water. Pray that their daily needs will be met and that they will be able to receive humanitarian aid. Ask God to help Medair reach vulnerable communities with emergency healthcare and nutrition services, especially women and children who are most at risk and suffering from malnutrition.
