Pray for Safety

The civil unrest and conflicts in the Ukraine with Russia have been worrisome and big news, but far removed from those of us living in North America. However, what if a family member of yours was living in Kiev?

Well, there is.

His name is Anatoly, and he is a member of God’s family—your family if you know Jesus Christ. Anatoly is the Compass Director for Ukraine and the entire Russian speaking world. He is a dedicated leader. He is married with two young children. They need your prayers because they live in a very dangerous place.

But Anatoly isn’t alone. There is the Compass South American Director, Andres Panasiuk, choosing to live in the most violent city in Mexico. And our Compass India Director, Richard, who often sends us a cryptic email asking for the prayer of protection for his team working in areas where there is massive hostility towards followers of Christ.

Would you please join us in praying for the Spirit of God to draw close and protect these men and women who are risking their lives for the sake of Christ and for teaching His way of handling money? May their examples be an encouragement to all us to make our lives count for our Lord.

Love in Christ,
Howard Dayton

First of all, the leaders of Compass from South America, Asia, Europe, India and North America met together for three days. I kept pinching myself over the privilege of just being in the same room with these godly, capable leaders. We spent chunks of time in prayer, and the Spirit of God had unusual freedom to shape our time and reveal His plan going forward.

When the leader of our Service Center in Orlando, shared, I was surprised to learn from Kelly Laughridge that we are receiving about 2,000 calls—a month! Many of the callers are from our radio audience asking for advice or wanting to Continue reading Challenges and Blessings
