Brook Hills, we praise God for your generosity in 2022 that allowed us to be poised to step into an unparalleled crisis situation that unfolded in Turkiye earlier this year when two earthquakes occurred within 12 hours of one another and rocked 10 provinces. Your funds fueled the efforts of believers over the next few months.
Day 1: Please pray for the endurance of the church in ongoing relief efforts. Believers are exhausted emotionally, physically, and spiritually as the needs have continued to multiply.
Day 2: Pray against disunity in the church. Satan has been at work to cause envy and dissension, even during times of open doors for gospel witness like never before. Please pray for protection against his scheming.
Day 3: Pray for Christ to be magnified through relief efforts. The Turkish people do not think Jesus is the Son of God, nor do they think he actually died on the cross. Let's pray for the truth about Jesus to awaken Turks to follow Him.
Day 4: Please pray for church leaders to work wisely with governing officials as long-term tent cities have been established in the regions affected by the earthquakes.
Day 5: Please pray for ongoing work to open doors for the gospel to be shared through trauma healing workshops. Pray for healing and for God to meet people in their desperation over the loss of loved ones and possessions.
Day 6: Praise God for providing so much during the initial phase of relief. Please pray for the resources needed to sustain these efforts over the long-haul.
Day 7: Pray for our partners on the ground in Turkiye as they continue to labor for the progress of the gospel there. Pray for them to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus, to abound in their love for one another, and for more laborers to be raised up to spread the gospel.
