While God has not given “us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control [sound judgment or sensibility]” (2 Timothy 1:7), there are times when we need extra wisdom from God in difficult situations. James reminds us that “if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him” (1:5).
We are at one of the junctures as one of our team arrived yesterday in S. E. Asia to visit areas of Myanmar for training and encouraging disciples there. He had to go through Seoul, South Korea to get there, which has become an area where the Corona Virus has infected many. We need God’s wisdom for our brother Jonathan. Will you pray with us?
Even as many saints from the beginning of time have suffered, we also are not immune from sickness and disease in the world. So, why do we ask for prayer? There is a deep passion in our hearts to equip indigenous believers to spread the gospel “to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). God has been moving in unique ways in Myanmar and many are catching the vision of reaching the very last unreached people group. In one sense, this prayer request is not about us, but about God providing a highway for the gospel as Jonathan goes there. At the same time, does he need to come home? That is the reason we ask for prayer.
Thank you for having the same concern as we do for God’s work. Paul expressed the same concern; “Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored” (2 Thessalonians 3:1). In this way, God will be glorified no matter what the circumstances may be!
