Tuesday March 16, 2010 Prayer Requests

We have a request from friends and family of the College Station, Texas team to provide some prayer requests for JoyHouse and the teams there currently. We are excited so many people are lifting us up in prayer. Thank you! Thank you!

Pray for the water situation. With so many people, we are buying water constantly. This is very time consuming and expensive. Pray that God will provide a long term solution to the water problem! We can use the well for bathing and it is safe for drinking, but the taste of the water (not actual bacteria) keeps people from being able to drink it. This was not the case before the earthquake.

Pray for the food distribution. We pray that everything will go well as that begins today at Jesus Church of Santos, Wednesday in Gran Savon and Friday in Carrefour. Pray for salvation in these areas as the teams minister to the physical and spiritual needs in these communities.

Pray the unity of the teams continues. We are so fortunate that everyone here, even under difficult conditions, is getting along so well.

Pray that everyone stays healthy. Matt Palermo has felt a little sick this morning, but seems much better now.

Pray for the spiritual renewal of all teams members. Pray for the JoyHouse team and the Haitian team members there helping and staying at JoyHouse. Eddy, Roland, Matthew, Reginald, Benito, Charlie, Fito, and Samuel.

Pray for Norma and Joe. Joe will be traveling to Haiti Thursday. Pray for safe and uneventful travel for him. Pray that they will continue to have the same resources, strength, focus and perseverance that is required to continue to answer the call at this critical time in Haiti.

Pray for the continued spirit of revival in Haiti.

We appreciate the prayers of the faithful who answer the call to GIVE, GO or PRAY!! Your continued support is so critical. Thank you all!


  1. It's a joy to get to join you in prayer!

  2. Thank you again for posting these!

    In Christ,

    P.S. A few posts ago you mentioned that one of the pastor's at Benito's church had Thyphoid. How is he doing?

  3. 14 of us have been praying for over an hour & a half. The Lord is good and we fully expect to hear of how He has answered our heart-felt cries tonight.

    As I prayed, the Lord led me to Isaiah 55:

    Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, com, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. why do you spend money on that which is not bread, and your labor on that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance! (vs.1-2)

    Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, FOR HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON. (vs. 6-7)

    For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES FROM MY MOUTH; IT SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME EMPTY; BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PURPOSE AND SUCCEED IN THE THING WHICH I SENT IT.

    For you shall go out with joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make A NAME FOR THE LORD,, AND EVERLASTING SIGN THAT SHALL NOT BE CUT OFF. (vs. 10-13)

    Amen & amen.
    May the Name of the Lord be glorified at Haiti JoyHouse.

  4. Thank you! This is perfect as a prayer guide for all of us! We are in this for the long-haul, not just this week while our team is there.
