We asked you to pray last week for a Christian woman in the village of Peni who, when she decided to follow Christ, was cursed by her family. She has buried all three of her children, most recently a one month old baby. Then two days ago the request came to pray for two children, ages ten and twelve, who have decided to follow Christ and have been kicked out of their home. They are currently living with the pastor. It is clear that there is a battle going on in this village, one that isn't being fought with guns or spears, but a spiritual battle with the high price of souls. Pray that these that are choosing Christ would stand firm, that there would be a softening of these that are so opposed to Christianity, and that our God would show Himself faithful and all powerful.

Andrew, I will be praying personally for this situation and will bring this request to our divisional chapel. Lord, dissolve strongholds and break the chains that bind the people in this village. Strengthen the new believers and deliver them by your mighty hand from the enemy's attempts to destroy them. In the Name of Jesus I pray!

Amen, Lord! I am praying in agreement with my sister.
