Greece
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 28 - Greece - ECMI: Wildfires are raging in Greece forcing thousands to evacuate in one of its worst heatwaves in decades. Let us pray for those affected, and for the ECM workers and ministries there.
Sri Lanka
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 27 - Sri Lanka - IFES: FOCUS Sri Lanka have found that online meetings have increased language divides in their Christian student groups, with shorter meetings and not having a neighbour to provide whispered translation making groups much more monolingual. Pray that ways would be found to overcome this and other barriers to allow students from different backgrounds to worship and learn together in Christian unity. (IFES - September 2021)
Malawi
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 26 - Africa - Zambesi Mission: Imagine not being able to open your Bible each morning to read God’s word.  The vast majority of believers in Malawi don’t have their own Bible.  Cost and availability are the main factors.  Getting the word of God into the hands of the people of God is one of zambesi mission’s top priorities.  Each recipient contributes about £1 and the mission funds the rest.  The mission’s Director in Malawi said: “The need is huge.  Bible reading helps believers to grow spiritually and protect themselves from false teaching”.  Please pray that this ‘feeding’ programme would reach many disciples in Malawi. (Zambesi Mission - September 2021)
Mexico
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 25 - Mexico - Compa Mexico - IFES: Compa Mexico hosted online student leader training in July, to provide biblical-theological tools which contribute to their integral formación and their participation in the student mission, especially in times of uncertainty and mourning. Kyong-Jin Lee shared about Deuteronomy, inviting participants to navigate history to understand our present that will serve us in the future, and to know God's great story, recapturing the hope of resurrection in the fearless student missionary call to give up everything to make Christ's name known. Pray for long term impact in the lives of student leaders and their groups. (IFES - September 2021)
