Who will you pray for today? Consider praying Scripture over your family.
Pray for your coworkers - the people you see every day. Pray that God would keep opening doors for you to share the gospel with them. For those who know the Lord, pray that they would continue to grow in Him.
VBS signups are in full swing! Ask God to move in the hearts of families and kids to commit to being a part of VBS this summer. Pray that God would bring many new families to be a part of Woodlands this year because of VBS.
Yesterday a team of 7 left from Woodlands on an 13-hour + another 5.5-hour flight to serve the people of Uganda. A few facts about Uganda:
As we dive in to learn more about Uganda, pray for the team that will be on the ground shortly. They are ministering in Bukeka at the Suubi Children's Center. Pray that they would be united under the vision God has for this team and they would walk by the power of His Holy Spirit!
- it is 241,551 sq km - much of this land is fertile and well watered!
- the population density of Uganda is 192 people/ sq km (compared to the US: 36 people/ sq km!)
- Praise God that there is now freedom of religion in Uganda and they've seen a revival from 1986 onward. Church attendance is high and public prayer is common. Almost 85% of Ugandans claim to be Christian. Here is a prayer point - the definition of 'being a Christian' can sometimes mean 'not Muslim' here. Pray for a renewal to turn nominal Christians into disciples!
Let's continue to pray for all of the marriages at Woodlands Church. Pray that we would be people who live out Ephesians 5:25-33:
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to Himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of His body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
