For Wednesday, June 14
th , 2017

Thank you for your faithfulness in prayer. Fervent prayer is the foundation that God uses to change the lives of untold numbers of souls for coming to Christ. Someday, we’ll know how significant is the time we spend in prayer. Now is the opportunity. It is your investment in time – your investment in His glory. Choose wisely – pray all the time in whatever you’re doing.

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise!


For BLF Éditions

- Praise God for an encouraging day of book sales and fellowship. We celebrated Pentecost with a gathering of our local sister churches. Some traveled an hour to enjoy the time worshiping together. Praise God for our fellow believers living and working as light and salt in the North of France. Praise Him for the challenging message we heard about sharing the Gospel and making disciples.

- Praise God for a very productive meeting that Ruben had with a new partner, Sel (French for salt). This organization handles many God-centered projects including the work of Compassion International in France. Please pray for wisdom as we develop this relationship and work through a book project for the end of the year.

- Please pray as Rory travels to visit us again in France. Pray for safety and comfort during the flights and an easy transition into our timezone.

- Please pray for our friend and French author, Stephanie. She is working on finishing her first book during the last trimester of her pregnancy. May God give her strength, creativity, and wisdom as she finishes her book and a healthy baby born afterward.

For BLF USA ...

- Please pray for the BLF USA board teleconference tomorrow evening. We need to continually discern what the Lord is doing and faithfully work with him in the part he gives us in his mission.

- Please pray for Rory Clark as he travels to France on Wednesday (June 14) for the BLF Édition board meetings and annual general assembly. This special meeting draws together an even broader group of BLF-interested people from France and Belgium. Rory enjoyed meeting these additional BLF champions, most for the first time. He’s looking forward to his time with the entire team. Now that Fred Mondin is back in France, he and Rory will be working on the Perspectives translation as well. He’ll be on the road for 9 days.

- Please pray for receptive hearts as the latest installment of the BLF USA Impressions letter arrives in the mailboxes/inboxes of BLF friends later this month.

- Please pray for Russ and Mary Ann Miller as they seek God's guidance as to where in the US they should go to represent BLF in late summer and fall. They will be in Wisconsin for BLF October 19-22.

- Please continue to pray for the Muslims of the Francophone world using our interactive Ramadan prayer calendar.

- Continue to pray for the leaders of the Francophone world: Mayotte (translated place of death) is one of the African Islands considered part of the Comoros, with 97% of the population Muslim. Pray for Soibahadine Ibrahim Ramadani President of the General Council. With its religious freedom open-air evangelism is allowed but most Christian converts eventually return to Islam. Magic and spirit possession dominate this version of Islam. Pray for a spiritual breakthrough—for God to call more workers for long-term ministry and for translators of the Old Testament into Shimaore, and the entire scriptures into the Shibushi language.
