Pray

God is the defender of those who are marginalised and his work is essential in the success of our programs overseas.

April: 30 Days of Thanks

  • April 1-3 This April, we are encouraging our supporters to join us in 30 Days of Thanks. We serve a good and loving God. Reflect on your own life and thank God for everything He has done and is doing in it. For more information on 30 Days of Thanks go to: www.facebook.com/baptistworldaidaustralia
  • April 4-10 Thank God for His provision. He has provided Baptist World Aid Australia with staff and volunteers who are passionate about ending poverty and generous and faithful supporters.
  • April 11-17 God has also blessed Baptist World Aid Australia with exceptional partner organisations. Without the dedication and the talent of our partner staff, the life-changing work which you support would not be possible. Thank God for faithfully directing these organisations to us.
  • April 18-24 Three years ago, on 24 April 2013, Rana Plaza collapsed killing more than 1,100 Bangladeshi factory workers and injuring over 2,000 more. Since then incredible progress has been made in the area of worker safety in the fashion industry. Thank God for the impact that the Baptist World Aid Fashion Report has on the industry and for the tireless work of our Advocacy Team. Ask that our third Fashion Report (due to be released this month) will continue to grow that impact.
  • April 25-30 Last year, on 25 April, Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake which killed nearly 9,000 people. The country’s long road to recovery was further hampered by fuel blockades along its Indian border. Our partner staff reported that fallout from the blockades was more disastrous to the people of Nepal than the earthquake itself. Thank God that these blockades have come to an end and that fuel prices in the country have finally begun to normalise.

May: Pray for our Programs Team

  • May 1-8 Please pray for our Programs Staff as they work to complete an important Australian Government funding application due this later month. If successful, the funding will allow the continuation of a much needed program in drought affected Papua New Guinea. Ask that God will keep their minds refreshed and bodies healthy as they undertake this important task.
  • May 9-15 Our Programs Team is currently in the midst of their yearly project reviews. Ask that God will guide them as they make important decisions about which new partnerships to embark on. Pray that He grants them godly wisdom as they review existing Baptist World Aid Australia partnerships.
  • May 16-22 As we approach the end of the Financial Year our Disaster Management Programs Staff are closely monitoring several projects which need to be finalised by the end of June. Please pray that God would open a path for their speedy and complete conclusion. Please continue to pray for the safety and protection of our Disaster Management Programs Staff who regularly travel to disaster prone communities.
  • May 23-31 As an important part of their role, our Programs Staff travel internationally on partner monitoring visits. Ask that God will continue to go with them into communities and grant them safety in their travels. Please pray regularly for their health and safety on these trips.
