‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.’ (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Our prayers often arise from a feeling of being troubled: something is wrong and we call out to God to put it right. In his grace, God hears us and acts. He is the God of all comfort – the one who not only hears us but cares for us and comforts us when we are troubled. So we pray, knowing we will be comforted and trusting God to work through us to comfort others.
Please join us in calling out to the God of all comfort for our partners and the children they serve. A few current prayer points are below and why not download our prayer diary?
Latest prayer points
PleaseÂ remember BCT and our partnersÂ within your personal prayer times or your regular prayer group. Below are some fresh points for prayer:
- Speaking out: APRECOM is committed to advocating for children affected by HIV. Praise God that, as a result, the communities they reach have become more welcoming and accepting towards affected families, and even towards former sex workers. Letâ€™s pray for continued breakthrough so that no child suffers stigma because of HIV in their family.
- Fresh opportunities: Praise God for opportunities to reach church leadersÂ in Nigeria, through BCTâ€™s involvement in Stop Child Witch Accusations (SCWA). Following focus group sessions in Akwa Ibom and Cross River states, SCWA is analysing group feedback to help identify the local roots and drivers of such accusations. Pray that God will bless SCWAâ€™s plans for â€˜Heart of the Matterâ€™ training with 50 church leaders in Akwa Ibom and 50 more in Cross River.
- Positive parenting: Work has begun on our latest series of training resources, â€˜Transform Familiesâ€™, which we will pilot this year.Â This work is motivated by an awareness of the need to strengthen families and to target some specific teaching at scapegoating children and on positive parenting. Please pray for Godâ€™s wisdom and guidance as we develop teaching materials for these resourcesÂ .
