Congolese pastors worshipping‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.’ (Psalm 91:1)

How comforting to know that, whatever life throws at us, we rest in the shadow of the Almighty, who defends us and provides for us. We pray, safe in God's protection and confident that his purposes are for the good of all his people.

Please join us in calling out to God for our partners and for the children they serve so faithfully. As we do that, we know that he will not just answer our prayers but also speak to us. A few current prayer points are below. You can also sign up for our quarterly prayer diary, or to become a prayer partner and receive ad hoc prayer requests by email. Contact us to get started.

 

Latest prayer points

Please remember BCT and our partners within your personal prayer times or your regular prayer group. Below are some fresh points for prayer:

  • Pray for the global effects of COVID-19. In the global south in particular, the pandemic has dramatically affected many people's income and the food supply chain. With fears growing for a worldwide recession after the pandemic recedes, millions of people are at risk of poverty and food scarcity. Pray with us that the world's most vulnerable children will be provided with the food they need.
  • Please ask God to guide the discussions in an online forum organised by SCWA on the topic of child witch accusations, scheduled for October. It will look at the impact of COVID-19 on communities where child witch accusations are common and on the situation within the UK. Ask God to bless SCWA’s plans for a Round Table Forum in Nigeria next year; praise God that SCWA has established a good working relationship with the team there.
  • It’s widely expected that the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fear and stigma it has fuelled, will prompt an increase in accusations of witchcraft against children. Pray that God will anoint those who are working to counter these lies and amplify their voices, so that harmful beliefs will be replaced with truth. Praise God for the dedication and commitment of Rev Jean-Paul Aruna, of our partner project LVLE in Goma, DRC. He has used regular slots on local radio and TV to reinforce public health messages about how the virus is spread. Child witch accusations are rife in some of the rural areas in which he ministers.
