Call for Prayer and Fasting – Three Days October 17, 2014
Noon Nov. 1 – Nov. 4
We are calling all Samaritans and those who pray to join us in contending for global impact through intercession. We want to stand in agreement for peace in the Middle East, and Hong Kong and against the fear growing from the Ebola outbreak. We also ask you to join us in prayer for the healing of families affected by the trauma associated with these crisis situations.
Many of our international leaders are dealing with these issues and they need our prayers for wisdom, courage and strength. In Liberia, GSM National Director Lucy Siafa said, “We continue fasting and praying for our nation and other nations affected by the deadly Ebola outbreak.” (Lucy’s family photo top left.)
Here is a recent testimony coming from a client of Lucy Siafa in Monrovia, Liberia:
“My wife got infected with the virus and died two weeks later. I got the virus while taking care of her. After her death, I was rushed to the Ebola camp half dead. Upon arrival, I was diagnosed positive and was put to bed. The same day, six patients died (near me). The following day, another six died. I was lying beside dead bodies. I was terrified, weak, and helpless. So I prayed that God save me. He did. I am not better than those who died but I thank God that I am alive. I have lost six persons in my family.”
The GSM Centers in Liberia and Sierra Leone are praying and reaching out to families to teach how to minimize the spread of Ebola and to encourage by making counseling available for the traumas experienced by these families.
Here’s a request from GSM-Sierra Leone National Director, Arthur Davies:
“Please continue to pray for West Africa, as our God is a prayer-answering God. Your prayers are being answered. Another good news is that even though there is no cure and the vaccine to prevent Ebola is still under testing, there are some survivors. In Sierra Leone, we have at the end of September 434 survivors. How come? With prayer, health care, and special diet, the immune system in an infected person can resist the virus. These survivors have been discharged from hospitals.”
“In the Kailahum District where the disease was first detected in Sierra Leone, there is little or no report of new infection during the month of September.”
“Will you join us for our kick-off prayer night Saturday Nov 1st at our Beaverton international headquarters office as we intercede and agree in prayer over these global issues? Come in for prayer beginning 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm on the first Saturday of the month at the office, then offer personal prayers for three more days through Tuesday Nov. 4 at noon. We believe our prayers will impact the nations!
