Fuel for Prayer
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

Gafcon Australia. In September, Gafcon Australia issued a statement inviting any members of the Anglican Church of Australia who were troubled by recent developments (about the Wangaratta diocese approving same-sex blessings) to contact Gafcon Australia. We prayed that people would up this invitation. Thank God that people from all over the nation have been contacting Gafcon Australia for advice. Pray for Bishop Richard Condie and the Gafcon Australia Board that they would have wisdom as they respond to requests for advice and assistance.

In October a Gafcon Sustainable Development team visited Niassa diocese in Mozambique. We prayed for them. Dennis Tongoi writes: This is the first of a four-part practical training program on Healthy Church. Each Archdeaconary mapped out locations where they could plant new churches. They were also to go and start small groups for prayer and reading the Bible. They were also to identify an economic project that could help sustain each family. The next session is in April 2020.
Please pray for the Lord to help those involved as they go about these ambitious tasks.

In October we prayed about invitations going out for Kigali 2020. Praise God that responses are coming in promptly and the take up rate is very encouraging. Please continue to pray that bishops will respond as quickly as possible and that any missed out are identified.
Saturday November 16
In October we prayed for the Gafcon Ireland Council which met on October 16th. Praise God they had a very good meeting: good attendance, good fellowship in God’s Word; and good planning. Please pray for their next event – a Residential Conference on Evangelism, Dec 1-3. Pray for the organisation for this event to go smoothly and for a good number to book in.

South Africa: Anglicans in South Africa do not yet have an official Gafcon branch. Rev'd Mathew Calitz writes: Pray that we will find the right leaders, passionate for the cause, who will be able to establish an official branch.

Gafcon Suffering Church Network. The Prayer Network is planning to feature the Suffering Church Network in December. Please pray for the leaders of the Suffering Church network that they can gather information which the Gafcon family can then use to pray effectively.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonions 5:16-18
