The Road to Lima
Building on from our June Prayer Focus, we continue with our prayer walk as we move towards our Global Consultation. Please join with us in intercession for this important time together:
Week Five (13th to 19th July): Latin America
We thank you for each country in Latin America and we excited and honoured to be able to make the journey to this region of our world.
Thank you for our hosting member, Paz y Esperanza, who has graciously opened their hearts to us and giving of their time and energy to welcome us to Peru. We want to stand with them now as they faithful serve you:
We pray for Alfonso Wieland, their International Director, as he recuperates from major surgery. Lord we pray that you will restore him to full health.
We pray for Ruth Alvarado, our event manager in Lima, as she draws all the important activities together. We pray for her health and safety and that of her family. That they may know your grace and presence each moment of each day. Lord, we pray that you will open doors for Ruth that enable her to be a blessing to each person she works with.
We pray for all the Paz y Esperanza team as they touch lives with your love, Lord we ask you to provide them with the resources they need to make a difference.
Week Six (20th to 26th July): National Micah Coordinators
Thank you Lord for each of our National Coordinators around the world who have caught the vision to Micah 6:8. We long for each one to be able to join us in Peru. To come and share what they are doing and to be encouraged and strengthened for the next phase of our advocacy initiative.
Lord, we pray for the funds to be raised for each coordinator to be able to attend Peru.
Lord, as we reflect together on what Micah should be doing in the coming year, please give each coordinator your heart and mind on this so that we will together be able to discern your will and walk in it.
Week Seven (27th July to 2nd August): Micah International Interim Board
Thank you Lord for the members of our international Interim Board who have given of their time and energy to lead Micah.
We pray for wisdom for them as they develop the new governance structure of Micah Global. We pray for their united leadership as they deliberate over how best to support Micah.
We especially pray for the Board meetings being held in the build up to the Consultation, that there would be a clear way ahead for Micah, guided by your Word and Spirit.
Week Eight (3rd to 9th August): Translation
Lord, we thank you that as a Global movement we can be blessed by the diversity of all who are a part of Micah. We pray for the interpreters who will be enabling us all to understand one another through the use of 5 languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese, French and Russian.
For the interpreters we still need to find to help in September and with translation of the materials – Lord we ask your help.
May each person be blessed and filled with your presence as they play such an important part in communicating the sessions and materials to share with us all. Thank you for their gifts and we ask a special peace and multiplication of their abilities.
Week Nine (10th to 16th August): Administration
Lord we know time pressure will start to build up for all of us who are involved in administration, as we gather the materials, the papers, the registrations, the handbooks together.
We pray for the smooth running of all the logistical and administrative tasks, in particular:
For the release of the visa confirmation letters for all who are attending
For the booking of flights (Lord, please let each person find special priced flight)
For the safe and timely delivery of the books for the books stall.
Lord, thank you for Jenny, Ruth, Roland and Adrienne as they work together to cover these tasks. Keep them safe and well and give them insight to anticipate all that is needed.
Lord we lift up our Consultation to you and offer it as an offering for your Spirit to guide us so that not one thing will be lost or forgotten. Multiply Lord, and walk with us through this time.
