PRAY FOR HAITI IN 2024

 

Join us in praying for the people and country of Haiti each week. Ask God to intervene on behalf of a country facing uncertainty, violence and turmoil. As Haiti continues to struggle, pray that God would do what might look impossible – bring peace and justice. Bondye kapab – God is able! 

 

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

DEEP ROOTS

As new believers put their faith in Christ in the midst of tremendous struggles in Haiti, ask God to help them build deep roots in His Word. Pray that they would be strengthened in their faith, overflow with thankfulness and hold fast to the truth of the gospel.

 

Colossians 2:6-7

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

ANSWERED PRAYER

 
Over the last two years we have been asking God to use the devastation and violence in Haiti for His good. God is answering that prayer in mighty ways! What the gang members intended for evil in forcing many to flee, God has used for good in drawing many people to Himself. A Haitian pastor forced to flee Port-au-Prince planted a new church in the mountains and over 50 have come to Christ in less than four months! God is also drawing more people even more closer to Himself as they seek strength and peace. Praise God today that He is continuing to work in Haiti in such powerful ways.
 
 
Genesis 50:20
 
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

NEW GOVERNMENT LEADERS

New government leaders have been appointed in Haiti. Ask God to give them His wisdom and integrity as they lead Haiti through this difficult and unprecedented time. May their actions bring change that will allow the Haitian people to live peaceful and godly lives.

 

1 Timothy 2:1-2

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

THOSE WHO ARE FLEEING

Countless men, women and children continue to flee their homes due to gang violence. Ask God today to protect those who are fleeing.
 
“Lord Jesus, we place these families in Your hands. Guard their lives from evil and violence. As they are surrounded by fear and uncertainty, we ask that You give them peace in the storm – a peace that can only come from You. Lord God, be their refuge and their shield.”
 
 
Psalm 91:4
 
“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

STRENGTH FOR THE WEARY

The people of Haiti are growing weary. Every area of life is an ongoing struggle. Today, praise God that He created the heavens and the earth and never grows weary. Ask God to give His people a fresh hope as they follow Him and to renew their strength day by day.

 

Isaiah 40:28-31

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

YOUTH IN BIBLE CLUBS

As children and teens in Luly gather at Youth Bible Clubs, pray that God would use His Word to touch their lives. We know that God’s Word does not return empty, but God uses it to accomplish His purposes. Pray that youth in Luly will be transformed by the Word of God!
 
 
 
 
Isaiah 55:10-11
 
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”

THOSE FAR FROM GOD

Many in Haiti (and across the world) are walking paths far from God. Ask God today, through the power of His Holy Spirit, to open their eyes to His goodness, grace, and mercy. May they see that God’s ways are greater than their own. Ask God to guide their steps and make straight their paths toward Him.

 

Proverbs 3:6

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

GOOD FRIDAY + EASTER

As we look ahead to Good Friday and Easter, we remember the great sacrifice that Jesus made for the world. In this act of bearing our sins and being crushed for our iniquities, we see grace and mercy flow. Ask God today to open eyes in Haiti – that they may see the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf – and to draw many to new life in Christ.

 
 
1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”

CHILDREN IN MOURNING

Today, please lift up children in Haiti who are mourning the loss of a parent due to gang violence, illness, or accident. Pray especially for the Grand-Pierre children who recently lost their mother to a devastating illness in Luly, Haiti. Now orphans, ask God to give them comfort and to meet their needs. May God use each of us to share His hope and comfort during difficult times.
 
 
2 Corinthians 1:3
 
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction…”

COLLEGE STUDENTS

In the middle of the chaos in Haiti, nine World Wide Village sponsored students are persevering and continuing their education in college. “Father God, we lift up college students in Haiti to You today as they embark on the journey of higher learning. We humbly ask for Your guidance and grace in their lives. Strengthen their minds, hearts, and spirits so that they may absorb the knowledge imparted by their professors in the midst of chaos all around them. Help these students overcome the many barriers to learning in Haiti. Lord, be their strength and shield.”

 

Psalm 28:7

“The LORD is my strength and my shield, in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped…”

JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

Lord, as Isaiah proclaimed over Israel, we also pray for Haiti. You are exalted and dwell on high. We ask that You fill Haiti with justice and righteousness and bring stability. Lord, we ask that You offer the Haitian people an abundance of salvation, wisdom and knowledge and pray that the fear of the Lord will be Haiti’s treasure.

 

Isaiah 33:5-6

“The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and He will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion’s treasure.”

MIDWIVES AND NURSES

Today, lift up our staff working at Sant Sante Espwa… Father God, I pray for Magdala & Gessica, and other midwives in Haiti, who care for very vulnerable women and children each day. Lord, help them to reflect You as they provide comfort and compassion to their patients. Give them wisdom and understanding in difficult situations and much patience.

 

Colossians 3:12

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience…”

SALVATION FOR MANY

As many in Haiti are facing unprecedented trials, ask God to draw them to Himself. Pray that men, women, and children (especially those in our Youth Bible Clubs) will have their eyes opened so they can see their need of Jesus and His great love for them. We pray that countless Haitians will come to Christ for salvation during these difficult times. 

 

Romans 5:8

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

MADAN SARA

“Madan Sara” is a term in Haiti for a woman who works tirelessly to buy, distribute, and sell food and other essentials in markets throughout Haiti. These women raise their children, serve in their local churches, and manage their small businesses. “Lord, I ask you today to fill these women in Haiti with faith and resolve to continue moving forward. Give them patience and endurance to stay the course, despite the many obstacles they face.”

 

Galatians 6:9

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

TEACHERS IN HAITI

Today, lift up teachers in Haiti. As they pour into their students day after day, ask God to pour into them. As fear and violence surround the children in their care, pray that God would fill them with an overflowing peace.

 

Romans 15:13 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

GODLY LEADERS

One of our Haitian staff members recently said, “I really love Haiti. I want to live here, but I want to live here in safety. Please pray for God to provide Haiti with a good government.”

 
Ask God today to raise up godly leaders for Haiti. Pray for leaders who are good, wise, righteous and just. Call on God to build up men and women who will defend the cause of the poor, widow and fatherless. Ask God to bring those people to positions of power and influence in Haiti.

 

Proverbs 11:14

“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”

January 25, 2024

SCHOOL DIRECTORS IN HAITI

Please lift up school directors in Haiti as they face difficult decisions, day after day. In our area, the directors at the Brazil School and Williamson School were forced to relocate their schools due to violence in Williamson. The directors also deal with the harsh reality that many children cannot afford school tuition, but teachers need to earn a living. Pray that the school directors will seek God as they lead their schools. Ask God to give them wisdom.

 

Proverbs 16:3

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3

PEACE FOR STUDENTS

Lord, we ask You to calm children’s hearts in Haiti when they feel afraid, stressed or worried. Living in Haiti can be so difficult. Remind them that You are the God of peace. Make Your presence known as You carry them through trials and challenges.

 

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

GOOD TO OVERCOME EVIL

Today, please pray for good to overcome evil in Haiti. Ask God to keep His eyes on those in Haiti who seek Him, delivering them out of their troubles. Pray urgently for safety for our staff, pastors, teachers and students as there has been a resurgence of gang violence in our area of Haiti.

 

Psalm 34:14-16

“Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil…”

January 5, 2024

PROTECTION AGAINST EVIL

Evil is such a harsh word, and yet God’s Word uses it frequently to describe the opposite of good. While we are all capable of sin, ask God today for protection for our Haitian friends against those who call good evil, and evil good. Guard children and families from those who scheme against righteousness and from those who twist truth into lies to accomplish their evil intents.

 

Psalm 121

“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.”
