World Day of Prayer 2013 – France

1381608_worship_the_living_godGreetings!

We only found out recently that this year’s Women’s World Day of Prayer is dedicated to France!

So if you’re a woman (and even if you’re not) it’s a great opportunity to pray for France.

You can find extra resources here, courtesy of France Mission.

As for us, we’d value prayers specifically for the following:

  • Thanks for a good meeting with the town Mayor (equivalent to the leader of the council). The “Maire” has an important role in each town (“commune”) and we were able to introduce ourselves and our desire to serve Calvisson in whatever way we could. Please pray for God to reveal Himself to him.
  • Thanks for the news that one of our members has led his niece to Christ; she lives in Grenoble but will be joining us on Sunday for our service. Please pray that God would bless her, protect and nurture her faith, and for me as I lead and preach.
  • Please continue to pray for God’s presence and love to outpoured in this region. He is definitely at work, and we long to see more.

Thanks for joining with us in prayer!!!

Pray for Calvisson

  1. Hi David & Claire-Lise, thinking of you today and praying that God will pour out his Spirit on your community. My reading this morning was of Paul & Barnabas parting company over John Mark, and yet in God’s amazing grace, each knowing His blessing upon their respective ongoing ministries. My memory of FEEBF from my brief experience in 2004 was of churches often divided over secondary matters – I don’t know if that’s still the case, but I pray that you will go forward confidently even if not all the believers around you can come with you at the moment. I don’t know if that makes any sense. Great to know that Paul & Barnabas came together again later! love from all at Thatcham. David Taylor.

    • Thank-you, David. Praise God, my feeling is that the French church is a lot more united than in the past. Certainly, unity is something the FEEBF work very hard at, but there are still situations where tensions lie, where church plants originate out of di-vision rather than vision; so this is still an area for prayer and that where there IS unity, that God would bring His blessing!
