Prayer Bulletin – December 2022

Issue No. 24 • December 2022

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer is beyond any question the highest activity of the human soul. Man is at his greatest and highest when upon his knees he comes face to face with God. – Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Acts 8:4 tells us, “Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”  As it has in so many other times and places, may this time of unrest and persecution serve to ignite the Gospel in ways we can’t even imagine.

B. Mongolia – John Keller

Key Scriptures/Promises

Isaiah 60, 61: for God to raise up Oaks of Righteousness where seeds of life will come from them and advance the gospel.

Ministry Background

Mongolia is a small and sparsely populated country of about over 3 million people. Seventy-five percent of the population is congregated in 3 cities. It is a nomadic people with a long and rich history dating back to Chinggis Khaan. Spiritually, it is mostly Tibetan-Buddhist with strains of Shamanism. Many of the younger generation are nominal Buddhists or nothing. Christianity is approximately 1-2 percent. Mongolia is in the pioneering-developing stage of ministry. We are seeing people respond to Jesus, but slowly. Men have been more difficult to reach. Economic opportunity is limited and many want to go overseas to study, live in work. It’s estimated that there are more Mongolians living outside of Mongolia than within.

Prayer Requests and/or Praises

  1. Our ministry is predominantly women and we are asking for God to reach more men. A result of this shortage of men is that the women marry non-believing men who draw them away from Jesus.
  2. For relational healing to take place. Mongolians in particular have difficulty facing and reconciling relationships. The result is a shame culture with much long-term bitterness. Please pray John 13:35
  3. Please pray for a foundational group called the “Laborer’s Team”, that they would take ownership of the ministry to heart, and that we’d see generations grow out from this group. We have seen this group dwindle in recent months.
  4. For God to rebuild this ministry and a new generation of leadership to emerge. We would love to see God raise up those who have a heart for the lost and especially among the university students in Ulaanbaatar (capital city).
  5. Since Jen and I no longer live in Mongolia, but oversee the ministry from the US, please pray that God gives us wisdom and capacity in our role as NDs from afar.

“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:1-5, NIV
