MEBO Monthly Prayer Focus
MEBO Monthly Prayer Focus is your opportunity to pray for the work of God’s kingdom in Lebanon and the Middle East. Every month we will focus on a different aspect of the ministries you can support through MEBO, providing you with information and prayer points so you can pray with insight. Please use this resource to pray with others at your church and use it in your personal quiet time. If you have a family, get your children or grandchildren to pray too. Thank you for your prayers!
January 2019: Protecting Refugees this Winter
Winters are hard in the Middle East, especially for refugee families living in tents or very precarious accommodation. They are constantly exposed to the elements and are susceptible to illness. With little funds to afford medical bills, getting something like pneumonia can be fatal.
Helping vulnerable people stay warm and well is one of the challenges MERATH (supported by MEBO) is dealing with this winter. As well as providing food assistance and many other services, MERATH is helping to distribute mattresses, blankets, fuel, stoves and heaters and clothes to the most in need through church partners in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.
Please pray for:
- The vulnerable families we are helping, that the items they receive will help keep parents, children and babies warm and well this winter
- Those we are supporting will feel encouraged and have renewed hope for the future, despite the challenges they face
- Mental and physical strength for MERATH and their partners as they help refugees, the displaced and others in desperate need
- The work of our partners, that it will also bear fruit within the churches themselves. Pray that people will be renewed in their faith by seeing everything God is doing
