Day of Prayer

Hi all! Today at 3pm at Calvary Chapel Klamath we will be having a prayer meeting, but whether you can attend or not, we would love to have you join in prayer.

We know that God works when we pray.... So here are some prayer requests... please pray as you are lead....

Leadership- We pray for the leadership in OCC throughout the nation and world… that they would keep their eyes on Jesus. That God would protect them and pour out His blessings and wisdom upon them as they seek to do His Work.

OCC locally –
-We pray for wisdom for the local team of volunteers, that they would do the work prepared for them, according to God’s calling
- We pray for more volunteers to help us do the work for OCC, sharing about OCC, and helping churches and organizations as they participate. Specifically, we pray the God would lift up a Media Volunteer.
- We praise God for the continuing partnership of churches. In 2011, almost 68,000 churches and church groups participated in OCC worldwide. We ask for the growth of this ministry to new churches in 2012.
-We pray for the churches and organizations involved, that they would have the energy, wisdom, and vision to carry forth the program according to God’s plan for their group
-We pray for the individuals who will pack shoeboxes this year. That God would guide their purchases, for the specific child who will receive a box… and that God would bless them richly.
-We pray for upcoming events where OCC will be present- Praise in the Park, and 3rd Thursdays, that the information about Operation Christmas Child would go out, and with it an opportunity for others to see what God is doing.

-We pray for those still traveling to do distributions, that God would protect them, guide them, and bless them as they show His love to these children and communities around the world.
-We pray for the pastors and Christian leaders at the distribution sites, that they would be good shepherds to these families, for their protection and provision.

Children and Families-
-We pray for the children who have yet to hear the gospel and receive a shoebox,  that God would soften their hearts and prepare them for the Good News they will soon hear.
-We pray that each child would receive the right box for them… filled with items that would meet needs physical and emotional and spiritual, and that they would meet with God and feel His love through this gift.
-We pray for the children who have heard the good news, that the seed would go deep and would produce true faith. That this experience would not be a one day event but be the beginning of a lifelong walk with God.
-We pray for the families and communities. That the light of Christ would go forth!

Philippines- We pray specifically for the work God is doing in the Philippines! (So many of our shoeboxes have gone there.) We pray for each child who received a shoebox from Klamath Area… that the love of Christ who go forth boldly through these simple gifts. There is much need in this nation, where so many are hurting and poor, and so many do not know the love of the Savior. Lord we thank you for the work you are doing through these shoeboxes. For the miracles You have wrought and for the salvation brought! We thank you for the work of Perry as she leads OCC in the region containing the Philippines and Indonesia. We ask that you would guide her and her volunteers to do Your Will.

Latvia- We also lift up Latvia, who a little over a year ago graduated their first class from the discipleship training course, the Great Adventure. We praise you for the Good News going forth in a nation that not so long ago banned You, under Soviet control. We praise you that as they have gained freedom as a nation, many are gaining true freedom in Christ.

We praise God that under His guidance and through His provision, this year, God willing, the 100 millionth shoebox will be collected and distributed!!!!!!
