Almighty and everlasting God, we praise and thank you for your grace that is always sufficient for us.
We pray for continuous wisdom, knowledge and attention to hear your voice so that we would move and minister according to your leading.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created many difficult situations in India and we pray especially for those on the margins as they still struggle with debts, loss of jobs, loss of business, chaos, uncertainty, depression and loneliness. Give us the strength O Lord, that CBM, through the local churches, could continue to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ and bring hope in their brokenness.
We thank you for faithful donors, prayer partners and well-wishers, who have a special heart for the ministry in India. We pray that you would bless them and their families immensely.
We look to you lead us well in partnership with the local Indian churches in our endeavor to empower and transform the lives of the poor widows and small children attending tutoring classes in the Soura community. We pray for community acceptance of the girls who were rescued from human trafficking in Kolkata. We seek your direction in the ministerial formation of young students as they train to be pastors and leaders in the Oriya, Soura, Naga and Telugu Baptist churches. We also pray for the many unemployed Mising and Ao Naga youth and women – that through the Faith + Work initiatives they may see opportunities and success to sustain themselves.
We remember the leadership of our India partners and seek your blessings upon their ministerial plans and goals. We particularly pray for Oriya Baptists as they elect a new body of leaders.
We pray for an opportunity to be vaccinated and protected from COVID-19 so that we may continue to minister with good health and sound mind, especially during my travel to the field areas where local partners are located.
In the many fields where my CBM colleagues serve in different and difficult situations around the world, we ask for your continued blessing as we all together work to bring shalom in the name of Jesus.
O Lord we put forward our supplications at your feet and seek your mercy. Be with us and help us. In Christ’s name we pray, amen.
Dear God, we praise you for you are compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Your light shines on the people in the darkness, you bring hope to those desperate.
God, I come to you with humility, praying for our mission partners who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. I pray that your grace and mercy come upon Thailand Bethel Theological Institute. As the second wave of COVID-19 overcomes Thailand and Myanmar, people have to face more challenges than before. The Thai-Myanmar border remains closed. The students from Myanmar are still not able to get back to the campus. They are struggling with living there and learning online under various obstacles. I pray that you will grant every teacher and student of TBTI the strength to keep on and that they may experience your provision in this difficult time.
God, I would like to remember the Lahu mission project in Myanmar. We had to cancel our trip due to the pandemic, but through the sharing from the local pastors, the gospel continues to spread and many have come under your name. We praise you and pray that you will continue to do the wonderful work among the villages and let more villagers know your salvation and worship you as the only true God. God, we also pray for peace and unity over the political situation in Myanmar.
God, we pray for the local churches in the Golden Triangle Region. As they bear your witnesses to this wounded world, we pray that the Holy Spirit will lead your servants to bring the Good News of salvation and the blessings of healing to the community. God, even if our days are full of uncertainties, we still have hope in you. We pray that your healing will come upon the sick, your comfort comes upon the wounded people, your provision will be with those who are in need.
God, we give thanks to you, for you allow your ministries to continue even under various constraints. Your unceasing love never fails.
We thank you for those in Canada who continue to embrace a broken world in word and deed through their prayers and generous giving. I ask for continued protection and provision for all of CBM’s work in the world – for the Field Staff and local partners.
There is no social distancing between you and your people. May your people stand firm in your presence and keep looking forward to face every circumstance. We trust in Jesus Christ who endured the cross so that we can look forward to joy in you.
Our heavenly father, we thank you for your mercy and care. Yes, Lord, though we have been facing many challenges in our lives, your steadfast love never ceases, your mercy never ends, they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
We are grateful to you, our Father, for the opportunity that we have to serve you here in Lebanon, as a family and an organization. We pray for this beautiful country and specially for its uncertain future. We ask you to provide direction and guidance to those who are in power. In the middle of uncertainty, give the people of Lebanon hope, peace and rest. Help them, o God, to trust in you as they think about their future and the future of their kids. Help them to hear your calm and peaceful voice in the middle of all the many noisy voices around them. Guide their steps and give them strength and courage to follow your purpose for their lives.
We lift up to you the CBM ministry in our region.
We pray for our seminary. We thank you God for leading us through this difficult time. To be able to adjust and start our new hybrid integrated theological program this week.
We lay down before you our new and current students as they attempt to adjust to the many responsibilities that they have while studying. Grant them energy and strength to pursue their studies. Help them to be able to balance work, studies and family.
We pray for the Lebanese Society for Education and Social Development and the many ministries under their umbrella. We pray especially for SKILLED as they work hard to support many families with kids that have special needs. Grant these families your patience as they care for their kids at home during this frustrating time.
We thank you for MERATH and for their relief work among refugees. We pray for refugees in this very cold season – that they are able to experience your warm love and your goodness through the kindness that MERATH shows, in your name.

We want to pray for Elie and Mireille Haddad as they carry on the responsibility of leading the seminary during this challenging time. We thank you for their leadership, for the many sacrifices they have made, and we ask you God, to give them strength and protect them from any disappointment.
As a family, we count on you in this season of our lives as we carry out our responsibilities. We need your strength, power, and joy in our lives. Wrap your arms around our kids, and help them to grow in your Word and in character.
