External challenges to the gospel are evident increased activity in and acceptance of the occult as well as intensified efforts by Muslims and Mormons to win those disillusioned with what they see of traditional Christianity. Pray for the confounding of these efforts and for true Christians to powerfully demonstrate Gods love and truth.
Young people desperately need spiritual guidance. The culture of immorality is pervasive, and even church-going teens are subject to its temptations. Illegitimate births and cohabitation are widespread. Pray that churches may offer effective programmes for children and youth, while demonstrating positive holiness. Pray also for the ministries of CEF, IS/ISUF(IFES), YFC, YWAM and others, whose potential impact among children and young people is massive.
