Pray

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

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.

 

June: Matching Grant and Multiplication

  • June 1-5 We recently launched our annual Matching Grant appeal and shared with our supporters the amazing story of Julia from Kenya. Thank God for the wonderful Community Development work which will be made possible in countries like Kenya, by the funds raised through this appeal.
  • June 6-12 By investing in women like Julia, the impact of Community Development projects (like the one Julia is a part of in Kenya) can be multiplied. Our Christian Partners taught Julia better agricultural techniques. Now her family has more food and she can to pay her children’s school fees. Pray that God multiplies the impact made by our Community Development projects.
  • June 13-19 17 June is World Day to Combat Desertif cation and Drought. Great progress has been made on these issues in Kenya through our Community Development projects. Praise God for the blessing of sand dams to people like Julia, which make water so much easier to fi d and access.
  • June 20-26 Please thank God for the continued support of the Australian Government as it funds the development work of Baptist World Aid Australia. Australian Government Funding is determined by the level of support given to us by our supporters. Pray that God will continue to multiply the funding we are blessed with as an organisation.
  • June 27-30 Thank God for blessing our nation fina cially and for the opportunities we are given to share that blessing with others who so desperately need it. Pray for the wise use of our taxes by our national leaders. Ask that it will be a blessing for those groups and communities who need it most.
