WEGO Prayer Guide – March 2019

“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
-Matthew 6:7-8

Let’s read that again with a little emphasis: “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” What confidence this should bring us. What pressure this releases from our prayers. Prayer isn’t like throwing a million darts at a board hoping one sticks. We don’t have to make a bunch of stuff up until our allotted time runs up. When we pray, we aren’t bringing anything new to God. He already knows what’s going on in His world. He doesn’t need an insider or a whistleblower.

So as you pray these requests to God, do so with the bold confidence that He already knows the full story of the request and how things will turn out. But your confidence shouldn’t solely be rooted in God’s all-knowing omniscience. We are bold to ask things of God because He is also our Father who cares for us and has the power to act.

House Church – Gachuurt, Mongolia

About our house church:
We have the great honor of hosting a house church that meets on our property in Mongolia. The church is mainly made up of our great staff and is pastored by our Ministry Director, Puje (Purevsed Garmaa). How incredible is that?! Our staff gathers every Sunday morning to sing, receive God’s Word, read Scripture, pray, fellowship, and give tithes and testimonies together. After the service our staff gets back to doing what the Body of Christ should always be doing, making disciples and changing the world, one kid at a time.


How You Can Pray:
1) Pray for the community surrounding our home in Gachuurt. Ask God to bring people to Himself through the lives of our staff and other believers in the area.
2) Please pray for the salvation of our church members families. This is a great burden to them that we are asking God to lift.
3) Will you continue to pray Philippians 1:9 for our house church? That their “love will abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight”.

Calvary Baptist Church – Diriamba, Nicaragua

From Pastor Luis Castro:
“I am 45-years-old and have been married for 24 years to my wife Karla. We do not have any kids. We are thankful with God’s purpose for our lives. Our church is located in EL QUEBRACHO, on the ocean road near Diriamba. I’ve been preaching here for five years and it is a blessing for my wife and I. We are so thankful for what God is holding for this ministry. We are working real hard so those who haven’t been saved can come to Christ one day soon. We have five church services a week with seven people saved every month but hoping to have more. We work with the youth and the kids a lot because they are the future of the church. We are planning to have a youth camp soon as we are trying to disciple our youth so they can be witnesses of Jesus. Thank you for praying for us as we pray for you, too. I was a sinner but Jesus forgave me. I am a new person now trying to live by grace because we will never lose our salvation and that is the greatest gift ever.”

How You Can Pray:
1) Pray for those who are living in sin to repent and seek Jesus
2) For those who believe we can lose our salvation
3) Please pray for all the nations that are going through tough times
4) Pray that we can learn to thank the Lord for calling us to go to places where our flesh doesn’t want to go share the gospel.

Dulchiin – Herder/Firemaker, Mongolia

About Dulchiin:
You would be hard-pressed to find a harder worker in this world. Dulchiin is a behind-the-scenes-ninja who makes everything in our children’s home operate smoothly. She fills it with warmth by keeping our furnaces full of wood, coal, fire…and sometimes cow dung. She keeps the water flowing by manually carrying  it from our well to the home. But most importantly, Dulchiin sees her job as much more than physical labor. She loves Jesus and sees her job as a venue to serve Him and the kids in our ministry. We are so grateful to call her both a staff member and a friend.

How You Can Pray:
1) Pray for her physical strength to continue to do her job well – especially during these brutal winter months.
2) Pray for the health and salvation of her family
3) Please pray for that Dulchiin daily ties her hard work into the vision of using it to build God’d kingdom.
