PRAY FOR THE CHURCH IN ETHIOPIA
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ . . .” Ephesians 4:11–12
READ EPHESIANS 4:11–16
Lord, we pray for Pastor Werku Golle in Ethiopia. Thank you for calling him to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Please help him as he leads the Ethiopian church-planting efforts to your glory. As you say in Ephesians 4:11–16, you have called us to do the work of the ministry. Stir my heart to see and understand the role you have called me to play in the work of the ministry at Mars Hill.
Pastor Werku Golle is playing his unique part in the body of Christ by serving the church in Ethiopia. As the head of the Dilla Bible College, he serves pastors and evangelists in Ethiopia. Pray for him as he goes forward doing the work of planting churches. One of the strongest needs is to bring pastors together for teaching and equipping. When Mars Hill Global helped make a pastors’ conference happen, over 400 came from all over the country, many walking for more than a week just to attend. Pray for the church in Ethiopia and the people teaching and equipping God’s people to serve.
Talk to God about your role in the church as a whole and Mars Hill specifically. Pray about the way God has wired you, gifted you, and where he has placed you to serve his church. Wherever you’re at, serve God there.
