PrayerList for the Unity Women’s Desk

June 2017

Pray for the many youth who will be attending camps this summer.  May they find joy as they meet friends and live and worship together.

Pray for Christians everywhere who are being targeted by terrorists.  Pray especially for the Coptic Christians of Egypt who were recently bombed.  Also pray for the people of Manchester, England who lost loved ones and their feeling of security because of the recent bombing there. Pray for our world for there seems to be no  place that is safe from such bombings. May the peace of Christ reign in the hearts of those who perpetrate such violence.

Pray for our many scholarship recipients as some finish another school year.  Pray for those who are taking examinations and awaiting the results to see if they may progress in their education.

Please continue to be in prayer for the Jamaica Province which is experiencing some internal problems.  All of us have these concerns from time to time, and it is incumbent upon us to pray for one another.

The Jamaica Women’s Fellowship will be celebrating their 75th Anniversary on July 9, 2017. We ask the Unity Sisters to join them in prayer for this event,

We ask for prayers for the Jamaica Synod, which will be held July 10-14, 2017.

Continue to pray for the Jan Blahoslav High School that the Czech Province is trying to establish. Some recent events in the Czech government have left them once again uncertain of the outcome for the school.

Pray for the pastoral conference for the church ministers and their spouses that will be held from 4th to 7th of July in the Czech Province. Dozens of men and women will meet together to share important questions of church life and encourage one another in ministry. The Czech Province’s synod will take place as a part of this event as well. The gathering will be also a celebration as we commemorate both 560 years of Unitas Fratrum and the 60th anniversary of the Czech province this year.

Pray for the newly elected president of the Honduras Province, Br. Raby Becam, and for the new Provincial Board which was also elected at their synod last month.  Also pray for the newly elected president of the Honduras Mission Province, Br. José Smith.  May the Lord bless all of them as they seek to lead in their respective provinces.

Pray for our Provincial Coordinators and Sub-Desk Coordinators as they seek to serve the women in their various areas.  May they find those who need assistance and help the Advisory Board to supply the various needs.

Pray for the Mission Conference of the Unity that will be held November 15-20, 2017 in Capetown, South Africa. Pray for those who are making preparations for the conference and for those who have been selected as delegates.

Pray for the Women’s Department of the Rukwa Province which is preparing a conference on Violence against Women there.  Facilitations will be Sr. Mary Kategile, Dr. Stella Lilongwe, and Bishop C.Nguvmali.  The workshop will be held in August.  

Pray for women and children everywhere who are victims of violence.

Pray for our women in ministry—those already serving churches and those who are awaiting call.  May the Lord bless them with meaningful work.  Pray for the Advisory Board as we complete the survey to be taken in each Province to see how equitably women are being treated in their efforts to answer Christ’s call to ministry.

Pray for the program being planned for all of Tanzania and surrounding countries by Sr. Tulie Kassimoto and Sr. Mary Kategile. Sr. Tuli was inspired at the 2016 Women’s Consultation to return home and work with Sr. Mary on a Sunday School program that would address issues of justice for women.  We are very pleased that with assistance from the UWD, the Herrnhutter Mission Society, and the Maggie Styers Mission Chapter that sufficient funds have been raised to bring representatives from all these areas together to prepare teachers for this important work.  May they be a role model for other Provinces to follow.   

Pray for the women of South Africa who are participating in a program by the Women’s Development Program entitled “Equip Me, Lord.”  The program consists of four parts:  “Equip Me, Lord, . . . .”  “as a Woman Made in Your Image,”  “As a Sister in the Women’s Organization,”  “As a Woman to Be Alongside and to Empower Other Women,” and “As a Woman in God’s Church and Society.”  Through the workshops they will be developing skills in leadership, cooperation, communication, decision-making, program planning and presentations, and participation. One workshop has already been held and two more are being planned. 

Pray for the safety of those who will be traveling this summer for vacations and for conferences in various provinces.  May they arrive safely.

 Please continue to pray for the capital campaign being conducted in the Southern Province in America.  “Standing with Our Sisters” is being well received, and we pray that the success there will encourage other provinces to seek ways to support the UWD.
