WEGO Prayer Guide – February 2019

In Psalm 27, King David leads us in a perfect prayer for people in times of trouble. God is our light, salvation, stronghold, house, shelter, rock, helper, song, Savior, and the straight path before us. As we pray for our WEGO family around the world, let us specifically pray and believe this Psalm for them.
Psalm 27
The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD. Hear my voice when I call, LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me. Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

We first met Miriam when she served as a translator for a WEGO trip to Nicaragua several years ago. Our WEGO staff and missionaries knew we needed to find a place for her within our ministries where she has now served in several areas since. From Diriamba, she is a gifted communicator who loves to serve Jesus in the same area where she was born and raised. A big part of her job is helping us put together this monthly guide. She spends a lot of time interviewing and getting to know the churches in our community, our staff, and the kids we get to serve. But most importantly, Miriam is about to deliver her first baby any day now so we want to make sure we spend some time praying for her!
