This week our focus for prayer is on the Central Province. The capital of the Central Province is Kandy, located in the center of Sri Lanka. Total population for the Central Province is over 2.5 million people. Pray that this district would be consumed with the Good News of the Gospel, and it would spread out from the center of this country, to the many surrounding districts.
But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God. (Hebrews 9:11-14)
Pray that, as the Muslims of Sri Lanka offer up animal sacrifices, someone would share with them that Jesus spilled his blood ONCE and for ALL and that they would believe in Him for salvation!
Pray for Christian leaders in Sri Lanka. Pray for God to do a work in their lives, so that they will be passionate about seeing the same thing happen in the lives of all Sri Lankans.
