War and Rumors of War …

In Matthew 24:6-8, Jesus advises us that we will hear of wars and rumors of wars. While many nations are in turmoil because of the evil in this world – especially as the end time ensues, we must be careful to pray that the Lord of the harvest will continue to rescue many to Christ. Many countries affected speak and read French. Please pray for the Francophone world, that Jesus Christ would be proclaimed and many would come to know Him as their Savior and Lord.

There is a battle going on for the souls of men. Pray for His victory - even this day!

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise!

For BLF Canada ...

Please pray for:

- A shipment of audio Bibles on their way to Haiti. Pray the boxes arrive safely and are not delayed in customs.

- Evangelism efforts in Quebec. Pray for the Lord of the harvest to turn rocky ground into good soil, ready to receive the seed of the gospel.

- A leader from the Central African Republic (the one who in our recent newsletter was so interested in the Perspectives translation) is asking for prayer for the volatile security situation in the eastern part of CAR. According to a recent UN report, one in five Central Africans is either internally displaced or has fled to a neighboring country (nearly 500,000 refugees live in the subregion, as of May 2017). Please pray for welcome, protection and blessing for the thousands suffering as a result of the violence, and for peace to return to that land.

- Please pray for the staff of BLF Éditions as they begin their required 3-week summer holiday. May this be a great time of refreshment and renewal. Pray for safety for those who are traveling, and for meaningful times to connect with friends and family.

- Please pray for Lebanon and recently appointed President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Saad Hariri. Following the collapse of the Ottoman empire after World War I, the five provinces that constitute modern Lebanon came under the French Mandate of Lebanon, and around 38% of the population speak French according to Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie’s 2014 French language report.

Lebanon is unique in the Middle East in its protection of religious freedom. Believers from other Arab countries freely go to Lebanon for Christian training at good evangelical Bible schools. Pray for healing and forgiveness from 70 years of tragic communal wars where so much was lost – loved ones, homes, jobs. Many Christians left to seek work and safety. Pray that many Lebanese come to faith in Jesus while there is much openness. Several hundred former Druze have come to faith and now worship Christ through a multi-agency partnership that serves them. Please pray too for the churches in Lebanon that are bringing blessing and hope to the large Syrian refugee population there.
