This young man lives in a city of about 3 million people in India. He’s working with local pastors to equip and empower them to make disciples and plant churches all over the city, eventually extending out into all the districts of the state in which they live. Targeting the urban center is a new initiative and this work is only in the beginning stages right now. Large city contexts present a unique challenge and opportunity for mission work, and he hopes to see the Lord do an Ephesians 3:20 sized work all for the purpose of Ephesians 3:21.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, (Eph. 3:20)
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,forever and ever. Amen. (Eph. 3:21)
“Let our hearts be filled with the assurance that prayer offered in living faith in the living God will bring certain and abundant answer.” – Andrew Murray
Missions is not a solitary effort. Our men, women, and families depend upon your prayers on behalf of their people and ministries. Each Tuesday you can invest in a missionary through prayer as we highlight their work and needs. Join with the CGCS in this incredible opportunity to touch the nations and to encourage our SEBTS international missionaries. Here are some specific requests from this young man in India:
- Pray that I would abide deeply in Christ.
- Pray that the Lord would do something so great in this city that it could only be attributed to the hand of God at work.
- Pray that God would grant the local pastors great boldness in the face of growing persecution.
