E.M. Bounds Purpose in Prayer

Working together with God

Tue, 30 May 2006

"As workers together with God, we must regard the conditions which prevail around us today." "Part of the blame lies at our door. If we do our part, God will do His. Around us is a world lost in sin, above us is a God willing and able to save; it is ours to build the bridge that links heaven and earth, and prayer is the mighty instrument that does the work." E.M. Bounds

Heavenly Father, open Mike and Sue's eyes to the condition of the Lebanese around them in Abidjan. Use the Farhos as a bridge from God to hungry men and women. Thank you Jesus for helping Sue's doctor to find the cause of her stomach problems (too much bran fiber).

Lebanon, Sanchez, and Healing

Tue, 23 May 2006

  • We are still looking into Arabic study in Lebanon and visits to our contacts now living there. Pray for God to work out the details.
  • Pray for Ramon and Maria Sanchez, who desire to return to Abidjan for more prayer ministry and visits with our friends. They requested an audience with the president of Cote d'Ivoire during their visit in June.
  • Over the last few weeks, Sue has suffered with stomach trouble. We would rather not have to see a doctor about it. Please pray that she would be healed. Thanks to your prayers, Sue has had much fewer headaches.

Betsy Bohuslavsky, is a new international worker nurse in Mali from our home church, Christ Community in Omaha. She had an accident on her bicycle yesterday. She has a concussion and liver damage. She is stable, but is very seriously injured.

Dear Heavenly Father, heal Betsy so that she will not need an operation. Encourage her as she is recovering. Give wisdom to her doctors and nurses. Build walls of protection around all Your international workers as they drive on dangerous roads around the world to share Your Son Jesus with the lost.

The Lord has shown his faithfulness to me. Thank you for your prayers and concerns. They have been a huge encouragement and given me strength. The love of Christ has also been evident through the many Malians and Workers who have come to my bedside to greet me and pray.

Global report on newborn mortality

Tue, 09 May 2006

By MARGIE MASON, AP Medical Writer

Worldwide about 4 million babies die in their first month of life — about half of those in the first 24 hours, a global report on newborn mortality says.

Expectant mothers also fare poorly in undeveloped countries, with half a million women dying annually from complications during pregnancy or birth often because they have no care before, during or after their babies are born, the report said. A huge number of women give birth at home alone or with no skilled attendant.

The 50-page report released ahead of Mother‘s Day compiles data from the world‘s nations as well as the World Health Organization and UNICEF . It presents a bleak look at the challenges pregnant women and newborns face in impoverished countries, where up to 99 percent of deaths occur — illustrating the wide gap between rich and poor nations.

Out of 78 low- and middle-income countries examined, Liberia had the highest newborn mortality rate with 65 out of 1,000 babies dying in a country where forced teen marriages are common and many women die during pregnancy or childbirth.

Liberia was closely followed by Afghanistan , Sierra Leone, Iraq, Pakistan and Ivory Coast — countries known for conflict and widespread violence against women.

We are happy to contribute to The Great Commission Fund, which enables misssionaries, like you and Sue, to go out and bring people to know the Lord--Otherwise they would never hear about our precious Saviour! God Bless!
