DFW’s diversity is increasing more rapidly by the day. More than 350 distinct languages are spoken in DFW’s homes, and most of these precious people need to find a relationship with Jesus Christ. Pray for the development of ongoing on-site prayer in each of the 10 DFW Prayer Zones.
On to the Fields
After social distancing people are open to meeting others. Pray for teams to move on to the land to meet Persons of Peace God has prepared. Develop a plan to be in the harvest field each week. Suggestion: Visit a Farmer’s Market or attend World Refugee Day on 6/19. Pray Luke 10:2
Lord empower us as ambassadors to reach the nations.
Individual Asians, particularly Chinese, continue to be blamed for Covid – even those born in the US. Dialogue. Exhibit kindness. Seek their safety and honor. Pray for Discovery Encounters in which Asians experience the God who saves face and declares “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame” (Rom 10:11).
The Hope of Glory
Indians living in north Texas have been shaken by Covid’s spread in India. May our neighbors experience the hope of God’s glory. Visit an Indian market (Patel Brothers perhaps) and pray Colossians 1:27 & John 8:12 for everyone you see.
