Gebed vir Natuurrampe

Jerigo Mure gee onder andere die volgende gebedsriglyne vir die afgelope week se natuurrampe:

Verify all info: Pray that people will not exploit social media by treating photos and videos of the disasters as entertainment, but that they will participate in prayer with hope and faith, verify all reports they receive before forwarding it , and contribute to the aid that is needed.

Immediate relief to the displaced. Literally thousands are currently displaced due to loss of their homes or places of refuge. Pray for every place of shelter to receive all that is needed to feed and clothe those in need. Ask for more churches to set up places to temporarily house displaced people, giving them shelter, food, clothing and a place to sleep.  Declare: Psalm 91:2  I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 

 

Shock & trauma.  It is impossible to describe the devastation, shock and trauma of those who lost everything.  Please pray for the comfort of the Holy Spirit. Ask for numerous opportunities to openly share the love of the Lord Jesus with everyone, and for many to put their hope in Him. Please pray that the church will use this opportunity to unite, to solve their differences, to actively work together and to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Declare: Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. Psalm 119:76 Let, I pray, Your merciful kindness be for my comfort, According to Your word to Your servant.

Rebuilding & restoring.  Pray for the rebuilding of the houses, communities and towns that suffered complete destruction.  Pray for the quick resolving of all insurance formalities, procedures to be followed in municipality wards, the implementation of temporary service delivery and the restoring of communication lines, electricity and water purification. Declare: Psalm 80:3 Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved! 

Remaining drought stricken areas. Large areas of the Namakwaland and Northern Cape have received less than 10 mm rain the past week. Livestock farmers daily encounter animal deaths due to heat, cold, lack of water and food shortages. Most bore holes on farms have run dry.  Pray for hope and faith in God to remain. Ask for God’s mercy and answer to prayers for gentle, continuous saturating rains in every drought stricken area in our nation. Declare: Psalm 71:14-15 But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits.  Jer.14:22 “Are there any among the false gods of the nations that can bring rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are you not He, O LORD our God? We set our hope on You, for You do all these things. 

National drought to be broken.  Generally a drought is officially ‘broken’ when the underground water tables are restored to normal. At least three years of sufficent seasonal rain are needed. Let us continue to pray for the consequences of the drought of the past 5 years to be reversed, for continued rains within every season, for restoration of the soil, the multiplication of live-stock and increased produce of the fields and trees. Declare: Psalm 104:14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man, that he may bring forth food from the earth Psalm 144:13 That our barns may be full, supplying all kinds of produce; that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields

    Ons het vir baie lank ‘n versorgingskommissie gehad vir leraars en personeellede. Dit was persone in die gemeente wat gereeld op informele wyse met elkeen van ons kontak gemaak het, belanggestel het in wat in ons lewens aangaan, uitgevra het na uitdagings, en vir ons gebid het. Dit was benewens die diensverhoudingekommissie wat meer op die formele dinge gekonsentreer het. Die inperking het ‘n bietjie daaraan verander, maar dit was ‘n baie goeie informele sisteem van versorging.

    Dit was Rethie van Niekerk se preek. Sy het in die preek verwys na die Hebreeuse woorde.

    Die eerste reël (seën) het drie woorde, dan vyf woorde, dan sewe woorde.  15, 20, 25 konsonante (onthou ʾ is ook ‘n konsonant).  11, 13, 16 lettergrepe (ek het weer getel, en dit is die korrekte aantal).

    24 yĕbārekkā yĕhwâh wĕyišmĕrekā
    25 yāʾēr yĕhwâh pānāyw ʾēlêykā wîyḥunekā
    26 yiśāʾ yĕhwâh pānāyw ʾēlêykā wĕyāśēm lĕkā šālôwm

    Hoop dit maak sin.

    NUM 6; GOD SE SEEN, Goeiemore
    Ek het vanoggend hierdie Bybelstudie gedoen en dit was wonderlik. Die deel DIE TEKS verstaan ek egter glad nie. ek kry die aantal woorde reg maar glad nie die konsonante en lettergrepe nie. Ek verstaan ook nie die doel van hierdie deel nie, tensy jy wil bewys dat dit menslik amper onmoontlik is om die seen so te skryf, met die spesifieke aantal konsonante en lettergrepe sonder God se ingryping.. ek sal dit waardeer as iemand die deel in kort vir my verduidelik Baie dankie Annemarie van zyl.

    Ds. Chris, soos altyd ń opbeurende en positiewe bydra deur U, vir die toepassing deur die kinders van God. Selfs hulle wat Hom nog nie as hul Saligmaker en Verlosser aangeneem het nie, sal baat by diė insetsel. Ek vra dat God se seën op U sal rus.

    Baie dankie vir die eerste keer in my lewe besef ek nou wat my probleem is. Ek het nog nie vir JESUS in my ontdek nie dis geen wonder dat my verhouding met JESUS nêrens kom nie. Geen ontmoeting geen kennis of wysheid en GEEN GROEI.

    Hi Annelize – ons hou dienste in die kerkgebou (Louis Bothasingel 177, Somerstrand) om 09:00 Sondae tegelykertyd met ons Youtube erediens ook om 09:00. Ons het ook ‘n meer informele Youtube erediens – Pulse – wat van 11:00 af op ‘n Sondag beskikbaar is. Ter wille van die personeel se verlof sal ons DV van 27 Desember tot 24 Januarie nie fisiese eredienste in die kerk hê nie, net die Youtube erediens 09:00. Dié dienste word weer hervat van 31 Januarie af sowel as moontlik ‘n aanddiens om 18:30. As jy hier is, maak ‘n afspraak dat ons jou kan verwelkom. My sel is “nul agt twee 5749191”. Groete, Chris van Wyk.
