Mukhanyo Prayer and Praise – May 2020

Picture

“Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry.” (Psalm 146:5-7)

These are wonderful and comforting words in a time of great uncertainty, fear, worry and despair. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God who made heaven and earth and never failed anybody. May the Lord help us all to keep our eyes on Him and put our trust in Him and not on a “son of man”.

  1. Thank the Lord with us – we haven’t received any news from staff or students being affected by the Corona virus and let us pray that He will continue to keep the Mukhanyo family safe.
  2. Our students and staff are at home since 20 March. Please pray that the Lord will help each one to spend more time with His Word and in prayer. This could also be a time to strengthen relationships with family. Pray that the Lord will bless the time spent with loved ones.
  3. Some of the Mukhanyo family are the only Christians in their families – or maybe one of a few. That can be extra difficult during a period of lock down. Please pray that the Lord will give them grace to be witnesses for Him among their loved ones and that some may put their trust in Christ.
  4. As a College we are facing many uncertainties. This is rather difficult as little proper planning can be done. Please pray that the Lord will help us to rest in Him, have patience and to use this time allowing ourselves to be built up spiritually by seeking Him in prayer and with His Word.
  5. Pray for wisdom for the management team and the Board of Mukhanyo. Amidst all the uncertainties, they have to make decisions and give guidance. They truly need special wisdom from the Lord in this time.
  6. Pray that when we will be able to resume classes, we will be able to reschedule the academic calendar effectively for the benefit of our students.
  7. Many of our faculty and students are involved in ministry in their churches. Life will be different after the lock down period and they will need wisdom and guidance from the Lord on how to be more effective in their churches after this.
  8. Let us thank the Lord for His provision, also for Mukhanyo, and pray that He will continue to provide in the time that lies ahead. Pray that we will be able to continue with this ministry to the glory of His Name.
  9. Let us pray that the Lord will help His children across the world to keep their eyes on Him and trust Him in the current difficult times and in the weeks and months to come.

Thank you for your continued support in prayer. May you also experience God’s blessing, peace and provision in this challenging period of history.
