Prayers for Masai


Dear beloved: Pics, Rhonda and Janet with Masai warriors,2017; Masai refugees from Tanzania,2022

Psalm 89:13 You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand. v14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face. v15  Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.

Beloved, over the years I have made several trips to the Masai Mara wildlife refuge in Kenya, the world's premier wildlife refuge. I have also had the privilege of traveling through the Masai ancestral land in Tanzania, a land the Masai say they have inhabited for 7,000 years.  The Masai in Tanzania are now being threatened with eviction from their tribal land, in a scheme concocted by some members of the government along with foreign interests who desire to profit off the ancestral land of these precious people. The Masai are a simple people who have no desire to be in conflict with anyone, they just want to be left alone to raise their families and livestock as they have for centuries.  Our God is a God of righteousness and justice, those attributes are the foundation of His throne!  He has heard the cry of the Masai.  Next week I will be going with a team to the border to pray with the Masai, and to make decrees and declarations on behalf of God's people who are standing with the Masai. Join us in prayer for the safety of our team, as well as comfort and protection for the Masai refugees.  We will also be distributing foodstuffs to help alleviate the suffering for those who have already been forcefully driven off their homesteads.  If you would like to contribute to this food distribution and prayer mission, we invite you to join us; $100 will buy three bags of rice which will help feed many needy families.  To see a video with more details of this situation, please click on the link :   Thank you for your prayers and support, may God bless you as you pray!

To Fathers

Dear  beloved:  Pics above, Men's prayer breakfast at Living Water Church; early days, Rowh Family

Malachi 4: 4 Remember the law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. v5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and coming day of the Lord, v6 and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.

Beloved, the desperate need for families in both Kenya and in America is for good fathers to be raising up their children in the home. Statistics paint a grim picture of the future for boys especially, as rates of drug addiction, poor school performance, incarceration, and other parameters are much higher in fatherless homes.  I was very blessed to have a loving, hard working father who cared for me and our family, and he was a great role model of a man of God in my life. I honor him and all fathers out there who are working hard to be the father in their families the Lord desires them to be.  At Living Water Church, we are training up men in the church to be disciples of Jesus, and beyond that great leaders of their families.  We have men's prayer breakfast twice each month, as well as Encounter training sessions that focus on their role in the family. We invite and appreciate your support and prayers for the church and for the children in the Living Water Children's Home, as they also must overcome the obstacles of having been orphaned or abandoned. We declare they will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony!  May God bless you as you pray!
