Dear Global Prayer Partner,Thank you for your prayers while the WMI prayer and I were in Morocco. I will be sending out a report on our trip soon. We walked under the canopy of your prayers. Our God is faithful to hear and answer prayer. Your prayers avail much!
The Christmas Season is here and I know that you have many things on your mind and many things to do. But I encourage you to take time for Jesus – He is the reason for the season.
The following prayer assignments are taken from Operation World 21st Century Edition by Patrick Johnstone and Jason Mandryk. There is more information on each nation and specialized ministry at http://www.gmi.org/ow/.

May God richly bless you as you pray and I again encourage you to meditate on 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (TLB): It is true that I am an ordinary, weak human being, but I don’t use human plans and methods to win my battles. I use God’s mighty weapons, not those made by men, to knock down the devil’s strongholds. These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him. With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God and change them into men whose hearts’ desire is obedience to Christ.
Remember during the busy days of December to celebrate Jesus. Praise Him for His bountiful gifts…for His supply that never runs dry.
