Prayer Letter – April 2016

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear Prayer Partners and friends of the Lord. Most of us mourned and celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus during the Easter season.  Please allow me to remind you that when Jesus was crucified on the cross and raised from the grave, the greatest event that creation ever experienced occurred in the calendar of God and man. At this time God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and committed to us the word of reconciliation(2 Cor 5:19). In Ephesians 1:10 this is called the dispensation of the fullness of the times when God gathered together in one, all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and on the earth. After His resurrection Christ ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father ever living to make intercession for us.

This word of reconciliation that has been given to us by a loving God in order to call sinners to be reconciled to Him through our Lord Jesus Christ is nothing less than the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus. Jesus has also given to the church gifted men, called evangelists, to fulfil this glorious task. For this reason the Gospel is preached by laymen, pastors, teachers, prophets, apostles and evangelists! You need no qualifications! However you need the Holy Spirit to anoint your words in order to convince the world of the sin of unbelief in Christ! You can be a child, a teenager, a young adult, a mature or elderly person or a male or female. If you do not have the confidence to share the Gospel, the Lord says that you can pray. Listen what Jesus said to His disciples in Mat 9:37-38 The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore PRAY the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.”

Having regard to the situation in South Africa, let us pray for the harvest in South Africa.

Heavenly Father we ask in the name of Jesus for:
  • Open doors for Angus at our schools, universities, tertiary and all other educational facilities in South Africa for the proclamation of the Gospel of peace, the unfolding of your love through those that already belong to you and the salvation of those that do not believe in Christ.
  • The raising up of student labourers in our educational facilities in order to bring the Gospel to unsaved students
  • Boldness for Christian -principals, -teachers, -lecturers, -student leaders and other leaders in authority to commit the Gospel to those that do not believe in you.
  • Access to Angus into Parliament to challenge the representatives of the nation to: serve honestly and to have regard to the great responsibility they have towards the people that elected them; to flee temptation, manipulation, bribery and corruption that has become a drain and curse to the finances of the nation; to have a genuine regard for the poor.
  • Granting of good health, boldness and courage to Angus to fulfil the calling that you have placed on him to minister all over the world in the demonstration and power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Thank you for your time and your prayers.

In Him, for you

Leon
