WEGO Prayer Guide – June 2018

“Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.” 
Psalm 61:1

Jesus, our Lord and Help, hear our cries. We know that you see the innocent blood that is being shed on the streets of our beloved Nicaragua. You hear the wails of mothers and fathers who have lost their children. And you see the fear and confusion of little ones as their parents speak of revolution and war. We know that your ears are not deaf to the groans of the oppressed who are reaching out for freedom. You are attentive to the grief of a nation locked in uncertainty, sadness, and pain. Lord Jesus, hear their cries and listen to their prayers.

God, hear the prayers of missionaries being trained for the harvest. Listen to the sound of little voices asking for food and shelter. Father of the fatherless, hear the longing of a five-year-old to live with his mother again. We know that you are always good and you are always able. May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Lord, hear our cries.

Good Samaritan Baptist Church –  Leon, Nicaragua

“I am 66 years old and I have 7 kids. I have been married for 40 years and my wife’s name is Miriam Castillo. The church is located at La Paz Centro in Leon, Nicaragua. All my kids are married and have their own families. I have been working with this church for one year but I’ve been a pastor for 50 years in a few other ministries. We are planning to build the church very soon; the Lord will provide the way in His time. The Lord has blessed me with life and health. I love what I do for the Lord and will keep serving him no matter what, especially in this time with what is going on with the country.  All of the churches are praying and waiting on the Lord to fulfill His plan for our nation. We have church services twice a week- Wednesdays and Sundays. The church has 50 members. I am visiting house by house so we pray more people will come to worship with us.”
