Pray for India on Sunday, April 28 2013

Lectionary Selection: Rev 21:1-6

Prayers for India:
Our Immortal God, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, we come into your presence with hopes of drinking from the spring of the water of life which You have so graciously offered to all the believers. Help us, O Lord, to walk in the path of righteousness, so that we may live as your people in new Jerusalem where there will be no more sorrow, death nor  pain. We lift our prayers for India – for the people, especially the farmers; for the government, especially those in power; for the land, to protect it from natural disasters; and for the non-believers, who are in plenty. We pray for all our mission partners in India and for their selfless labor of love for Your glory, dear God, guide and strengthen them. We pray for the Christian Hospital in Mungeli, where we are facing a shortage of nurses at present, may You give us the wisdom and strength to overcome this crisis and to never lose faith in You who has always provided and will forever provide. Amen.

Mission Stewardship Moment from India:
Christian Hospital, Mungeli also runs the Rambo Memorial School, which is an English medium school subsidized by the hospital in order to educate rural children from the surrounding villages. Starting from 80 students in 2003, the school now has 650 children, out of which 400 children belong to the villages within a radius of 25 miles and are brought by our school buses, there being no other mode of transportation (unless you count the bullock-carts and cycle-rickshaws !). To keep up with the times, the school has recently been furnished and equipped with a computer classroom, where on-line classes can be taken from the Khan Academy. Of course, we were helped by our “software” friends from the US….but most of all YOU – who support us and in turn, support the school. We could never have achieved what we were able to, without your support, love and prayers. Our heartfelt thanks to all!
