Prayer Letter – March 2016

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for looking in. Please stay a while with us and allow the Holy Spirit to use you to join in prayer with all the prayer partners and Angus.

From the March itinerary you will note that Angus will be extremely busy.

Will you set aside time every day in March to cover Angus and the team with prayer:
  • Our brother Angus will need all the strength that he can receive from the Lord. ‘ Ps 28 :7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him.’ Let us also remember that the joy of the Lord is our strength. That includes you.
  • It is so easy to be distracted by the events in the world. The Holy Spirit says friendship with the world is enmity with God. It is for this very reason that Angus must remain focused and heed to the word that says: ‘…..let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Heb 12 :1-2)
    Will you join in prayer that Angus remains focused?
  • Since I have known Angus he preaches the Gospel with great passion. Please pray that he may persevere in this always with great fervour and that he may conclude with Paul, ‘I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Gentile.’
  • “My grace ‘is’ sufficient for you…’. The most important word in this sentence is the word ‘is’ as opposed to a possible ‘was’ or ‘will be’. ‘Is’ indicates continuous grace, available every moment. Let us pray that the ‘continuous grace’ of God may rest on Angus in order to enable him to lead by example and persevere to the end.
  • Scripture says we need protection ‘for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.’  Pauls exhorts that for protection we need to put on the full armour of God. This armour is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ – the girdle of TRUTH; the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS; the shield of FAITH; the helmet of SALVATION; the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, THE WORD OF GOD.  Please pray for the protection of our brother and the team in every facet of their lives as they are out in the forefront of the battle.
Remember to pray for God’s blessing on these events:

4 & 5 March – King Williams Town
8 March – TBN Africa re-launch
13March – MMC Bushveld
17 March – Hans Scriba – CSBM Supper Event in Cape Town; 27 March Shalom Fellowship

Thank you for persevering with us. You prayers are highly valued by the Lord!

In His service with you,
Leon.
