Baptist Women’s Day of Prayer
Through the Fruit of the Spirit KINDNESS

My dear sisters in Europe!

It is thrilling that soon we will celebrate The Day of Prayer! We will come together in different places to worship our God. We will remember each other from different countries and continents.

Just a few weeks ago we had conference in Tallinn, Estonia, we were together more than 50 participants from 20 countries. We are thankful to Estonian team for hard but wonderful job!

  • Pray for Middle East, for Palestinian Christians and all countries in this region. At the end of September EBF General council meeting took place in Israel and we met some Palestine leaders in Bethlehem, their cry was: don’t forget us!
  • Pray for Asia, BWA Annual gathering took place in summer in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, where Baptist Union was hosting us, but in reality they are China’s people, because Christianity is forbidden in Malaysia and they have underground churches.
  • Pray for Japan, when we were in Kuala Lumpur, three representatives shared how terrible is the situation where there was tsunami and nuclear reactor explosion, it has long term after-effects and they asked: don’t forget us please!
  • Pray for our new EBF president Hans Guderian who started his task in September, and for all EBF staff.
  • Pray for new leaders in Europe Baptist women’s unions, there were many conferences and congresses in October.
  • Pray for your own country and your leaders, and the future of women’s ministries in Europe.
  • Pray for revival in our hearts, that we could serve the Lord with pure heart and with joy because of Him. He is Worthy, He is Holy and it our privilege that we can  serve Him through love.

Dear sisters, you see I am in trouble, there are many many -pray for… May God bless you and Holy Spirit leads in prayers!! We appreciate your Prayers and Prayer Day’s offering!

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.        

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 5,6

P.S. You see that I have a new surname. Nothing bad has happened, but God has given me  a gift and after being a widow for 7 years, I am married.
