Join us in prayer…

PREACHING:

  • Middle East North Africa: More than 20 leaders from across seven countries will gather for 24 hours in Amman (13-14 March) for opening discussions on how a work might commence in this region. Please pray that a consensus will emerge, as Riad Kassis and Paul Windsor convene this crucial meeting together.
  • Europe: More than 20 leaders from eleven countries are expected to gather for five days in Budapest (16-20 March) for crucial discussions on how to further develop the work. Langham Preaching staff members - Mark Meynell, Ruth Slater, Jennifer Cuthbertson - are all involved. Pray for unity, boldness and wisdom.
  • Library Grant: The annual Library Grant Catalogue was sent out to nearly 1600 member Bible colleges and theological institutions. This will enable these libraries to spend £100 on heavily subsidised books, post-free. Many of the colleges rely on the printed version of the catalogue, which often takes three months to be delivered and sometimes even six! Please pray for the safe delivery of these catalogues so that we are able to receive everyone’s orders.

LITERATURE

  • Latin American Bible Commentary: The editorial work is due to be completed by the end of October this year. Please pray for its General Editor, René Padilla, as he completes the final edit and for Ian Darke and his team as they start the production process and the marketing campaign.
  • Slavic Commentary: The coordinator, Taras Dyatlik is in full swing with his team of theological editors and typesetters to finish all the work this year. The Ukrainian and Russian commentators and editors need your prayers in these very tense days to finish the work as they are living in less than ideal circumstances.

SCHOLARS

  • We give thanks to God for the successful first ever Langham Scholars Asia Consultation held in Singapore in February. Twelve Langham Scholars attended, with times of training seminars, presentations about their work, and devotions. They were excited to have Langham Scholars working together in Asia.
  • Scholar Qaiser Julius, studying at Melbourne School of Theology, is hoping to submit his doctoral thesis by the end of this semester and would appreciate prayer as he makes the final push towards its completion. Pray too for him and his family as they prepare to return to Pakistan later this year.
