Prayer Letter – December 2015

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear Prayer Partners,

Allow me to express my appreciation and gratitude for all your prayers for Angus. When we look back we can only thank God for hearing us and answering all our prayers. This gives us confidence to go to His throne of grace freely to make our request, petitions and prayers known to Him.

The year 2015 will be remembered for a number of extraordinary things:
  • The war in the Middle East
  • The migration of hundreds of thousands of peoples from North Africa and the Middle East to Europe
  • The terrorist activities in Europe and the USA
  • Earthquakes, famines, droughts, floods  and pestilences at various places
  • Lawlessness abounding everywhere

Surely this must be the beginning of sorrows and signs of His coming to receive those that belong to Him? (See in Mat 24.) What does the Lord expect us to do in the meantime? ‘And this gospel of the Kingdom must be preached to the entire world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.’ Math 24:14.

The urgency for the preaching of the Gospel is going to be greater in the years to come than ever before. We should take note that those that are suffering under the calamities mentioned above are actually the harvest. In this regard Jesus said in Luke 10:2 the Lord Jesus said, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore PRAY the Lord of the Harvest that he may send out labourers into His harvest.’

Dear Lord Jesus, Lord of the harvest, we thank you for the ministry that you have given Angus to fulfil your calling as Evangelist, Prophet and Teacher. We pray in particular Lord that you may give Angus a time of good rest and prepare him for the great things that you want to do through him in the years to come. May he be like a Caleb in his own prayers, saying: ‘LORD! Give me this mountain!’

Lord, prepare all of us for the years that lie ahead that we may be diligent in our prayers for Angus and the ministry that you have called him to.

Lord I pray for all of us during this time of celebrating the birth of the Son of God:

For unto us a child is born,
Unto us a son is given,
And the government will be on his shoulder,
And His name will be called,
Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of peace.

Meet us here again in the next year. Remain in Him! Leon.
