Welcome to a new feature for 2018. 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 2018: Keeping refugees warm and well (MERATH)
Helping vulnerable people stay warm 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 in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.
This winter, they are providing more than 3,000 households with several of those much-needed items so that they can have a warmer winter. Around 2,200 of the blankets their partners will distribute are being handmade by and purchased from one of our partner’s women’s sewing project to promote income generation.
Please pray for:
- MERATH and their partners as they help refugees, the displaced and others in desperate need, for mental and physical strength in what can be tiring work.
- The vulnerable families we are helping, that the services they receive will help keep parents, children and babies warm and well this winter.
- Those we are supporting to feel encouraged and have renewed hope for the future despite the challenges they face.
- 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.
