Prayer Requests

Thank you for every word you offer in prayer towards this Children’s Centre and for God’s will to be done through me here in Mozambique. Thank you for standing with me in trusting the Lord for His mighty hand to work in these children’s lives. Thank you for your faith in believing He is doing beyond what we can imagine possible. And thank you for joining with me in celebrating our miracle working God.

Dorm 5 boys praying.
This is now the dorm I parent, of currently 17 precious boys between the ages of 6 and 10.

My hope is that each one of you receives the blessing of these prayer points upon your life too.

*May we hear the Lord clearly throughout each day. May be be solely lead by the Holy Spirit. May His wisdom and love guide each decision we make.

(Please pray for wisdom as I parent the 17 boys in my dorm. May I be imputing into their lives all and only what the Lord has for them. May He speak to me about what He wants to teach each of them in this season, and lead me with divine ideas to encourage them to get to know Him. Please pray for His presence as I interact with those in the community that I am living in; that His love touches those around me and His Spirit flows.)

*May we have Godly vision and purpose for each area of our lives.

(As I am in the beginning phase of taking on responsibility in different areas, please pray that the Lord gives me vision. May we see His purpose and will fulfilled in the lives of the boys in my dorm, and each child He leads me to interact with, in the lives of the Mozambicans and missionaries, in the lives of the visitors we care for, and in each life that is touched through Iris Ministries.)

*May we trust the Lord as He continues to fulfil His promise to provide for each day.

(God has been so faithful, and supplied for every need as it arises. May His provision continue not only for me to be serving here in Mozambique but also for every child, adult and family supported through Iris Zimpeto.)

*May the Lord’s finances be used unto His glory.

(Since every donation is for the Lord’s work, please continue to pray for divine wisdom as to be a faithful steward of what the Lord entrusts to me.)

*May our lives be covered with His favour and protection.

(Please continue to pray for the Lord’s protection throughout each day. Both physical protection and health as well as spiritual protection. May His favour continue to rest upon our lives that even when this go wrong God intervenes so that they go perfectly right.)

* May we all grow to know Him deeper and deeper. (Please pray that each child growing up in this orphanage grows to know the Father. May they deeply and truly know His voice; and may they walk closely with the Holy Spirit. Please pray that each person who passes in and out of the centre gates is touched by the Lord’s presence. May each of us learn to focus on things above and live in the light of our eternity with our Heavenly Father.

Thank you for joining me in this journey!

Lots and lots of love,
