O God, with all our hearts, we long for you. Come, transform us to be Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused people, multiplying disciples everywhere.

June 29

Bible Readings:

Acts 20:1724; 1 Corinthians 9:1927

Reflection Questions:

  • What most strikes you about Paul’s efforts to multiply disciples everywhere?
  • Paul was “all in” when it came to disciple-making. What would “all in” look like for you?
  • How could you leave your comfort zone to make the Gospel relevant to those God has called you to reach?

Prayer Prompts:

  • That we would pursue all possible means to multiply disciples and have the courage to do all we can to provide access to Jesus for all people.
  • That we would be compelled to complete the missional tasks that Jesus has given us and that we would do so with great humility and heartfelt tears.
  • That our international workers among the Wolof would have Spirit-empowered wisdom to contextualize the Gospel and lead them to become disciples of Jesus.

Listening Prayer:

  • Jesus, what is one way I could identify with those you call me so that I might make an impact?

Wolof:

The Wolof have strong ties to their culture, heritage, and language. Despite colonization, modernization, and globalization pressures, the Wolof still maintain many traditional practices.

There are around 6,000 Wolof who call Canada home, and they have predominately settled into communities in Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, and Winnipeg. Only 0.02% of the 6 million Wolof are Christian; the rest are followers of Islam. Most Wolof are not overtly antagonistic to the gospel message.

They are usually polite and will “discuss” Christian views but are still resistant to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.

Pray with us:

Lord Jesus, you are the Prince of Peace. You are peace to the heart amid fear. We thank you for Wolofs who have found you as their peace. For those who do not know you in this way, we pray that you will bless them with the peace that comes from a relationship with Jesus. Bless them with the assurance of eternal life. We ask that you uphold new Wolof believers and keep them faithful to Jesus and firm in their faith, despite persecution and rejection by their families. Enfold them in your garments and speak the hope of peace to their understanding. Amen.
