Prayer request from Bosnia

“Dear Jones family,
This is short and urgent prayer request. From yestrday we are passing through very difficult time. Somebody in Tuzla obviosly realise that our church is growing fast. It is obviosly problem for some people. We got message that we should stop our ministry and go away.

Yestrday, one person visite us with bodyquard and promise to us that our church will be “finished”. Well, we knoe that hard times like this can come . God promised that no one can stop His work. We do not know what we can expect from people who hate us, but we know what we can expect from God. We pray that we will have peace in our hearts and that God will give us lot of strenght to be testamony of His love and mercy.

If something new happen we will write to you.

Thank you for keeping us in prayers and for being with us in this hard times.

God bless you!”

Note – these are good friends of ours.

  • hello to our brothers and sisters in bosnia. Your prayer request came on the evening we had set aside to seek god out in prayer (as we try to do at the beginning of every month.) Tears for you came as we prayed, and also a joy that you have been chosen to endure.. this morning i read 2corinthians1:8-11 about Paul’s hardships in Asia. We hope the god of all comfort brings you joy and peace and deliverance from the tyranny of fear. Stand firm on the rock that is our god, we are still praying for you, duo

  • How to express or explain mysteries? Universal solutions to all problems, giving to every need as answers to every prayer request. Pray to sow what flowers bliss, blessings, oneness, and love for all forms and states of life. From butterflies to spirits – ghost. The salvation of all lives in complete end to all sufferings. Whether it be done by righteous works of government, economics, or people in authority with the power to give immense goodness to all lives. As it be done through our unified prayers. So all will live life with infinitely most eternal beautiful experiences.

  • With time people should be more MATURE, so that NEBOJSA UNDERSTANDS HE UNDERESTIMATED KATARINA, was too harsh and broke up in a hurry – That he start to appreciate their earlier relationship more – THAT HE START TO CARE FOR HER MORE – AND NOT TO WITHDRAW FROM HIS FEELINGS. That he understands he underestimated his feelings for her AND MAKE NEW STEPS TOWARD KATARINA – That Nebojsa DOES NOT GET INVOLVED INTO ANY NEW RELATIONSHIP – that God WORK ON HIM to understand THAT FEELINGS ARE NOT TO RUN FROM THEM, BUT BUILD FUTURE AND LIFE – AND PUT HIS EFFORT AND STRENGTH IN THAT – he said, and knows what he promised. For their complete reconciliation , conversation, agreement about THEIR FUTURE AND MARRIAGE – That they continue that conversation AND BRING IT TO FULFILLING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE – That God heal all OLD HURTS, and bring them together and LEAD THEIR MEETINGS AND CONVERSATIONS
    Also for me, MARINA – I am Christian and a girl in a ministry –That God send a RIGHT MAN FROM HIM, man with LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, PASSION AND GENTLNESS THAT GOD WILL BRING SINGLE AND COMPLETE PERSON, FORMED, GIFTED, etc.
    FOR SPIRITUAL AND MATERIAL BLESSINGS in our families! FOR MORE CLOSER AND BEAUTIFUL PRAYERS TO THE LIVING LORD!
    FOR ALL DOORS FROM GOD to be open for us, His children, FOR MANY OF HIS RESOURCES TO BE AVAILABLE TO US
