This month we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Light of the World. Many in East Timor have a nominal Catholic background. How we pray that many will have a profound, life-changing encounter with the real, living, power of God this Christmas time. Pray that the Holy Spirit will draw people into a relationship with Himself that leads to repentance, forgiveness, and transformation. Pray that churches will be renewed, and back-sliders will return to the Lord. Pray that the Light of the World will shine brightly in the lives of those who love and follow Jesus (The Bible, John 1:9).
