Challenges for Prayer

Spiritual leaders. Pray for current and future pastors and leaders to be trained and formed to God’s standards. Crucial to biblical formation are Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary in Windhoek (SIM/AIM, NGK), the Namibia Ministry Training Institute (Pentecostal) and YWAM’s training bases. TEE plays an important role, especially in the north, through the NETS distance education programme. Pray also that the mainline training institutes would capture a love and respect for God’s Word.

     For an additional 6 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
