Latest prayer points

United Kingdom
Pray for more residents at Betel UK, a restoration charity: Pray for Betel UK, an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment. It is a safe, structured, family-like environment where there is consistent peer-support: during the first few months each resident is assigned a brother- or sister-like mentor. Pray for more residents at their various centres in England, and one in Scotland. Pray for the Holy Spirit to change peoples' lives.  (WEC International - May 2021)
Spain
Give thanks for increase in evangelicals in Spain: Figures recently released show that 2% of Spaniards are now considered ‘protestant evangelical Christian’. That’s an eight-fold increase in the last 20 years. Thank you, Lord for gospel growth! At the same time, sadly, there has also been a large increase in the numbers of those who don’t believe in God or that don’t believe they can know Him. Pray this week for Spanish evangelists, preachers, children’s workers, authors, poets, artists, teachers, mums, dads, and kids who love Jesus. May their witness be real, attractive, and Spirit-empowered.  (Platform 67 - May 2021)
France
Farmers lose fruit harvests due to weather changes: In certain parts of the country, many farmers have lost nearly all their crops of fruits like peaches, apricots, cherries, and grapes as a result of a recent cold snap following a period of warmer weather that caused trees to start fruiting. Few will have been insured against such losses. (France Mission - May 2021)
Hungary
Jewish people in Hungary: International Mission to Jewish People reaches out to Jewish people around the world to share the Good News. Budapest is home to more than 80,000 Jewish people – in fact, this large Jewish community makes up 80% of Hungary’s entire Jewish population, making it the largest native Jewish population of any city in East Central Europe. Bogi Kozma is our missionary based in Budapest and she is reaching out in creative ways to share the gospel. Please pray that the Lord will move among this community of Hungarian Jewish people and that many will come to faith as they hear the Good News. (International Mission to Jewish People - May 2021)
