Global Diaspora Network and Liverpool Hope University are hosting a working consultation from June 5-8, with evening sessions free and open to the public. We plan and we put forth great effort, but we are completely dependent upon the Lord for this gathering to accomplish anything of lasting value. Please pray with us.
Lift up all participants before the Lord. Ask for His provision of visas, funding, strong health, pleasant travels and spiritual protection. Pray for humble and loving attitudes and the readiness to learn, to share and to obey. (Philippians 2:1-11)
Pray for all the speakers, presenters, worship and devotion leaders. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead the preparations and to supply the words and songs. Pray that Christ will be glorified through these men and women. (Acts 4:13, 31)
Bless the volunteers and administrative team. Ask God to give them energy, patience and creativity to avoid or resolve logistical challenges. Call on the Lord to remember these loving acts toward their brothers and sisters. (Nehemiah 5:19)
Place GDN’s Executive Team in God’s hands. Ask the Lord to give them unity, wisdom and clear direction during their pre-consultation meeting (June 3-4) and as they oversee the publication of material from this consultation. Pray that His presence will be obvious as they fellowship and work together. (Psalm 133)
Intercede for the local churches, ministries, organizations and Christ-followers hosting or attending the evening sessions (June 5-7). Ask the Spirit to bring greater understanding and deeper insight into the work of reconciliation. Pray for God’s Kingdom to come upon all the peoples in Liverpool. (2 Peter 3:18)
May this consultation be dedicated to looking to the Lord and responding to His voice. May the family of God be strengthened, encouraged and inspired through this gathering. May God’s purposes in diaspora be fulfilled in Europe, throughout the Global South and to the ends of the universe. (Acts 17:24-28)
