The EU continues to encourage faculties to be thinking and praying for people around the world who are Less Reached and Less Resourced (LRLR). For those of you who were at AnCon, we hope this week was a great encouragement and challenge for you to consider how you might serve the LRLR with your skills and resources.
Feel free to ask your faculty members if there are any missionaries or people groups that they have been praying for and encourage them to share and lead the faculty in prayer at this time.
You may like to pray for the Mappila people group in south west India.
Here are some prayer points you could lead your faculty to pray through.
Thank God for the opportunities to meet together this semester through EU activities, small groups, equip courses and faculty gatherings.
Thank God for the work of EU staff workers and specialist teams in serving the EU this year.
Thank God for his provision and that there is meaning in our lives because of Jesus. Thank God that he keeps his promises and for giving us hope.
Pray for the EU's 90th Year of Evangelism and that his Word will be spread across the university during this time.
Pray for boldness and wisdom in sharing the gospel to students, friends and staff at Sydney Uni. Pray that God will continue to grow his kingdom.
30 They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were, 31 because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”
