Prayer Lifeline—August 8, 2017

Printer-friendly Version  |  Phone Version

“Lord, here in your Temple we meditate upon your kindness and your love. Your name is known throughout the earth, O God. You are praised everywhere for the salvation you have scattered throughout the world” (Psalm 48:9-10 TLB). Thank you for your fervent and faithful prayers, which empower missionaries and ministries to spread Christ’s love around the globe. FYI: There will be no Prayer Lifeline on August 15, so we’ll meet you back here on August 22!


Albania: Nathan and Cydil Waggoner rejoice that six people from their village were baptized recently, following the example of Christ. Keep these new Christians in your prayers as they walk with the Lord and witness to family and friends.
Kenya: John and Linda Spriegel shared that God answered their prayers for more Kenyan and missionary doctors. After Kenya closed the door several years ago for DOs (doctors of osteopathic medicine) to practice medicine in the country, it was recently indicated that Kenya will again consider licensing American doctors of osteopathy on a case-by-case basis. Join the Spriegels in thanking God and praying that this will open up the possibility for more doctors to consider serving at Tenwek Hospital.
Mexico: Bill and Lydia Allshouse announced that several students received their certificate of completion at God’s Cabin following several weeks of studying the Bible, learning stories, and memorizing scriptures. Please pray that these students will use the New Testaments they received to continue to study God’s Word at home.
Uganda: A Women’s Cycle of Life training was held last week in Nebbi with 15 women attending. May the truth that the women heard take root in their hearts and grow and flourish in their homes, churches, and communities. Pray also for a second Women’s Cycle of Life training to be held alongside a Farming God’s Way training in Bugiri August 28–31. Pray that the leaders will have unique opportunities to share the good news and that participants will grasp life-changing truths.
Because You Prayed: God is faithful and has provided the prayer and financial support needed for Steve and Theresa Manchester to be released from homeland ministry assignment. Remember Steve and Theresa as they leave for Kenya on August 18 and transition back into their ministries at Tenwek.


Kenya: Kenya is holding its presidential election today, August 8. The violence that followed the election 10 years ago is still fresh in the minds of Kenyans. Please pray for peace for Kenya and for a good electoral process.
Mexico: Mark and Serena Dunbar request prayer for Cesar Vidal, a Spanish historian who is speaking throughout Mexico this week. He will be leading conferences about the Reformation (this is the 500th anniversary) and its impact on the world as well as sharing about the political issues confronting the world with the gender crisis. Pray that the people who need to hear Cesar will attend and learn what believers need to do to see a reformation in our society and to promote Christian values.
Uganda: Africa Gospel Church Uganda will elect a new bishop later this year. Begin praying for God’s man or woman to be elected. (The current bishop is not eligible for re-election as he has served for two terms.)
Harvest Workers: Pray that more missionaries will partner with WGM in the Great Commission, filling vital needs and spreading His love around the globe. (If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact
The Call Prayer Calendar (August 6–12): Ask God to help you see the full vision of the cross more clearly. (This request was taken from “God Met Me There: Building an Altar,” the July 2017 issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
