Prayer Update—June 16, 2017

“I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
incline your ear to me; hear my words.”

Psalm 17:6

Dear Praying Friends,

Czech Bible Institute (Czech Republic) is holding a conference this week called “Reformation 500” which will examine key texts and people of the Reformation. Pray for all to gain a deeper appreciation for God’s working in history to preserve His truth and bring it to our time.

Pray for the upcoming conference sponsored by Word of Grace Biblical Seminary (Mexico) from June 20-22. The conference is titled, “The True Value of the Reformation,” and will feature bible exposition from pastors Evis Carballosa, Miguel Núñez, Alex Montoya and Henry Tolopilo. Please also pray for the annual seminary graduation on the 24th.

The teaching team at Pastoral Training Seminary (India) is thrilled to be welcoming, for the first time, one of their own graduates as a part-time faculty member. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, he is pastoring a church plant in the area. Pray for the students and teachers at PTS as they begin their new academic year.

Pray for the graduates of Christ Seminary (South Africa) as they labor to be faithful to the word of God in spite of the often pervasive influences of hybrid religions among the populations they are trying to reach and serve. Pray for them to have courage and clarity as they humbly and simply teach the Bible and live lives of integrity in front of their congregations.

Irpin Biblical Seminary (Ukraine) recently held their first “Common Charge” conference for current M.Div. students and graduates with the goal of encouraging one another to grow personally in their relationship with Christ and in their commitment to the exposition of God’s word. Pray that God would use these men to sharpen and strengthen each other as they share in each other’s lives toward a common goal of serving Christ and His church.

Italian Theological Academy (Italy) is thankful that they are getting increased requests for training from new locations. Pray for wisdom for the leadership as they pursue these opportunities. They also have been given the opportunity to pursue translation and publication of the entire MacArthur New Testament Commentary series into Italian. Pray for the resources to undertake this huge project.

Pray for the training centers which are currently recruiting and processing applications for their new academic year. Ask the Lord to give them wisdom and to bring to the schools those He has prepared to be trained.

Thank you for praying with us!
