October 2019 Prayer Guide

“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.” Psalm 139:1-4 NLT

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1 John 4:10 NLT

I love the truth of what the Psalmist relays to us—God knows us. Period. Everything about us. There is no hiding from God. There is no place where He can’t find you.

Or rescue you.

Or heal you.

Knowing us so intimately, He demonstrates what He thinks about us in our brokenness. He loves. He sends His Son as a sacrifice.

Someone once said we are worth Jesus to the Father. Every baby, child, adult and family that comes to CURE is worth Jesus to the Father. Priceless value!

Our God loves to make kids and families whole in their relationship with Him and with each other. God loves to heal from the inside out. Would you join us this month in prayer for His kids and the CURE family and network around the world?

The 25th of October is World Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida Day. The day is aimed at celebrating the lives of patients with these conditions and appreciating the different teams that are dedicated to caring for this community of patients. Our Care Coordinators, in collaboration with the institutions in which they work, organize or participate in different kinds of events and activities to celebrate the day. This may include awareness campaigns, free surgical camps, community education, and gift giving, among others. Pray for this day that whatever plans have been made in different locations will be a success and that it will be memorable and impactful to the communities. And that many souls will come to Christ.
Pray for all the Care Coordinators that God will anoint them and use them in lives of the patients. For the Care Coordinators working in areas that are not open to the Gospel, we pray that God will give the Care Coordinators creative ways to share and demonstrate the love of Christ to the patients and for their protection.
In addition, here are a few requests from some of our partner treatment locations:
Vietnam PTL
Pray for more opportunities to be able to share the gospel to the patients and their families, so that more people can know God.
Mali PTL
Pray for the neurosurgeon that God will continue to guide him and give him intelligence.
Pray for the children scheduled for surgery and for their procedures to go well.
Pray for the Care Coordinator that God will give him the grace to execute his duties with all excellence.
Angola PTL
Over the next three months there will be a concerted effort to reduce the number of children awaiting surgery for hydrocephalus and Spina bifida. Please pray for the patients who will undergo surgery; for strength, wisdom and teamwork for the medical team; and for the gospel to spread in Angola through the work of our Care Coordinator. Please also pray for adequate supplies, good care and patient follow up.

Dear Lord, I am praying for your peace to come and stay into our home and family. We need it more then ever. Please release us from all this pain and worry. Come Lord, and take away all that is breaking my family apart. Unite us with your love and light. Soften our hearts to you, let us find strength in you Lord. Cleanse our minds and hearts with your blood you shed on the cross for all us sinners. Remove the emptiness and darkness in our hearts and replace it with your light. Send your Holy Spirit to guide us and unite us. Send your Guardian Angels to protect us from all evil and let us hear their voices of your Love to us. Thank You Lord.
