Guarding and proclaiming the unchanging truth in a changing world

Moment & Prayer 12 October 2020

This week's #globalmomentandprayer is for the Diocese of Boga in The Democratic Republic of the Congo:

Moment

In the Diocese of Boga in DR Congo, they have a positive plan for educating and equipping priests for the village churches. With the support of Anglican Aid, lay leaders first have Bible School training; they are then commissioned and sent to grow a local church. Bishop William Bahemuka writes: ‘Those who perform well in their local churches qualify for ordination. That is contrary to the tradition of qualified leaders who want to be deployed to ready-made churches.’ On Sunday, Sept 6th, there was a commissioning service for 15 lay leaders (which also included confirmation for 50 other people).

Prayer

Pray for these 15 commissioned lay leaders, that they may be faithful pastors and evangelists and show themselves suitable for ordination.

Global Anglicans Moment & Prayer is an initiative for churches around the world so that each week they are kept up to date with news and a prayer item. Please share these in your church's bulletins and media announcements: https://www.gafcon.org/moment-and-prayer

Throughout Gafcon churches worldwide we are looking to build up the faithful global Communion by sharing these bulletin updates in Gafcon churches' media announcements. We are seeking to have a Gafcon representative or advocate in each church who will be our point of contact for the Moment & Prayer items. If you are a church staff member and/or an active church member who is using the Moment & Prayer news then we would love to connect with you and email the weekly updates to you.

Please email [email protected] if you would like to find out more and be added to the group of Gafcon Church Representatives/Advocates.

We pray this is an encouragement to you.
