A Tender Heart

HOW OFTEN are you overwhelmed with compassion for someone else?

Mark 6:34 says, “When Jesus got out of the boat, he saw the large crowd that was like sheep without a shepherd. He felt sorry for the people and started teaching them many things.”

Those involved in First Nations ministry need to have the Creator’s tender heart toward our Native people.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native American people and those in Native Ministry will reflect the Creator’s heart of compassion.

Isaiah 57:18 says, ” I know what you are like! But I will heal you, lead you, and give you comfort.”

2 Corinthians 2:7-8 says, ” When people sin, you should forgive and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. You should make them sure of your love for them.”

Ask our Creator to fill the hearts of those serving in Native Ministry with His compassion for our First Nations people.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.

Isaiah 49:13; Isaiah 57:18-19; Zechariah 7:8-9; Hebrews 10:34; Hebrews 13:3; Matthew 25:34-40.

Pray for First Nations: Compassionate Ministry

First Nations Monday
“Holding Up The People In Prayer”

Monday, March 9, 2015 – WK 10 – Compassionate Ministry

DID YOU know that it is impossible to be a ‘perfect’ Christian? Still, we must pursue that goal into eternity, risking heartache along the way.

Those serving in First Nations ministry can experience hurt and frustration to the point of endangering their walk with Christ.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be loving and patient, knowing they are imperfect servants reaching out to broken people.

Jeremiah 22:2-3 says, “I am the Lord, so pay attention! You have been allowing people to cheat, rob and take advantage of widows, orphans, and foreigners who live here. Innocent people have become victims of violence, and some of them have even been killed. But now I command you to do what is right and see that justice is done. Rescue everyone who has suffered from injustice.”

Ask our Creator to encourage our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, who strive to live right in a fallen world.

Pray for First Nations for Enthusiasm To Preach

First Nations Monday
“Holding Up The People In Prayer”

Monday, February 23, 2015 – WK 8 – Enthusiasm To Preach

WHEN WAS the last time you were truly enthusiastic about sharing the Gospel, knowing in your spirit that Christ’s return is drawing near?

In Revelation 1:3, John says that our Creator will bless everyone who hears and obeys His prophecy, and that the time is almost here.

After years of evangelism among our Native people, some reports suggest that less than 2% are serving Christ. Those involved in First Nations ministry carry a heavy burden to reach the lost before Jesus returns.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be dedicated to spreading the message of Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:1 says, “Finally, our friends, please pray for us. This will help the message about the Lord to spread quickly, and others will respect it, just as you do.”

Ask our Creator to allow His message to spread quickly through the joyful cooperation of our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry.

**  As we approach 15 years of our prayer mobilization project and international networking of prayer for First Nations / Native American / American Indian people, I am reminded of my own journey through periods of decreased enthusiasm and indifference.   How much more do the warriors on the front line struggle through peaks and valleys. Today, even more than yesterday, finds this week’s prayer point vital and relevant.  Thank you for your continued prayer and support.
