Burkina Faso Prayer Diary

bk-prayer-diary-header

As a church, we believe that it is very important to support our team in prayer throughout their time in Burkina Faso. It simply isn’t possible for all of us to go on such mission trips, but we can all play our part by remembering the team in our prayers.
You can do this in several different ways:

We’ll be meeting for prayer in the minister’s room every night at nine o’clock from
Monday, 7th November to the Friday, 18th of November.
We would love you to join us as often as possible and stay as long as you can.

If you can’t make it down to church, then please set aside some time for personal prayer around nine o’clock every evening. To help you, you could use the following prayer guide:
