Nazarene Missions International (NMI) Northwest District of Bangladesh recently organized a prayer fellowship. There were 60 participants from 38 churches within five areas who attended the event, including representatives of Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries, Nazarene Youth International, area conveners and local church pastors.
The main theme of the event was: “And pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” – Ephesians 6:18
The main objectives of the event were:
- To encourage the local leaders/churches
- To pray for the local churches
- To pray for the transition period of the Church of the Nazarene Bangladesh
People were very encouraged through the prayer time. Some said that confusion and worries left them through the experience of praying together. Participants were moved emotionally as they prayed for our churches.
Some participants shared their testimonies, which encouraged other participants. The participants promised to help the local churches in their area to promote the mission of God. Local leadership is developing through this kind of event as well.
Local NMI women leaders promised to establish a church, so, women are participating directly in God’s mission.
The church is facing very challenging times in Bangladesh; please pray for them.
