Bangladesh

God our father, we lift up the country of Bangladesh to you. We pray that your spirit would continue to work powerfully through new believers in the church plant ministry in Bangladesh. We pray that you would give the persecuted strength to endure for your name's sake. We pray that your loving character would be displayed through the good works of the Christian Service Society.
We pray that the people of Bangladesh would “sing the praises of the Lord… and proclaim among the nations what He (Jesus) has done.” (Psalm 9:11)

Brazil

Jesus, thank you that you have a deep passion to see your name made known to the remote jungle villages in the Amazon River basin. We pray that you would resource the River ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Manaus to reach the lost, make disciples and plant churches. Give us a greater heart for the Brazilian people.

God, we declare that, you will be lifted up in the nation of Brazil as you are lifted up in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)

Czech Republic

Jesus our King, we pray for the country of Czech Republic. We pray that once again your spirit would move among the people, drawing them to yourself. We pray for them to turn from their sin and open their spiritual eyes to you. We pray for the leaders of Josiah Venture that they would be refreshed by you and that this year would be a great year of growth.

God you said to King David in Psalm 2:8, “Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” We ask this for the country of Czech Republic today.

Haiti

God you love the people of Haiti more than we ever could, and we pray that you would open our hearts to love them as you do. We know that it grieves your heart that a people, whom so many claim to love you, also bend a knee to other gods. We pray now, against Satan’s hold on that nation. We pray that the power of the Gospel would transform the nation of Haiti from person to person. We pray for our partner Open Door Haiti as they are ministering to the people in Haiti.

We pray for your ways to be known in Haiti, your salvation to all the people. (Psalm 67:2)

Nicaragua

Please pray for the political unrest in the country of Nicaragua. 

Shine your glory, through us, as we go and make disciples! (Genesis 12:1-13, Matthew 28:18-20)

Sierra Leone

Holy Spirit we praise you for your great redeeming work in Sierra Leone! We pray for New Harvest Global Ministries as they seek to plant a church in every village. We pray that you would supply the leaders, the Bibles, the spiritual breakthrough, and the resources to continue to establish your church in that nation. God, we are ready to be sent by you as we pray, give and go to impact Sierra Leone. You are the Lord of all the earth and you are the Lord of Sierra Leone. We are willing to shout your name!

Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name. (Psalm 18:49)

Jered RothWIlson

Evangelism Pastor

A Portland, Oregon native and reluctantly recovering hipster, Jered received a masters degree from Western Seminary and planted a church in the City of Roses for the last ten years. Being middle-aged it may seem as though several years are unaccounted for in his narrative, but they were mostly spent being a youth pastor, associate pastor, enjoying being married to his favorite person and raising three beautiful girls. He doesn't get what the big deal is about Portillos, but has acquired a taste for deep dish pizza, loves the church and loves motivating people to live transformed lives in Jesus.
