For this cause we, also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding… ~ Colossians 1:9

Friends, this Prayer Wall is a place where you can encourage our African Lulu mamas and pastors through Scripture and written-out prayers. Once a month we will take these prayers and email them to the national directors so they can see your hearts poured-out, and share them with their people. It’s also a place where you can share how the Spirit is moving you to pray on behalf of The Lulu Tree in general, in response to our weekly prayer emails, or on behalf of Africa or the world at large. It’s a way to do church with our family across the waters.

If there’s a specific person you are praying for, please indicate in the comments section below and then include your Scripture reference or prayer and we will make sure they get it.

Would you join with us, then, in sharing your prayers below — for the mothers, the babies, the pastors, the widows and orphans and the countries of Africa? Would you post encouraging words for our brothers and sisters working so hard to bring the kingdom of heaven to one of the darkest places on earth? And would you never stop interceding for them? For in fact, your prayers are changing the world. Thank you.

The key to prayer is simply praying. ~ A.W. Tozer

    Gracious and Loving Lord,
    I thank you for the incredible work which is being done in Your name. Please bless all of the mamas and their babes that they may be filled with Your Spirit. Grant them hope and surround them with love, I pray.
    Please also bless all those in this precious ministry and give them all that they need to continue to support these people as they share Your love and Grace each and every day.
    In the name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, amen.

    Father, we lift up our brothers and sisters in Somalia and all around the world that are being persecuted for Your Names sake. Keep them safe, O God, for they have come to You for refuge. You are our Master and every good thing we have comes from You! The godly people in the land are our true heroes! We take pleasure in them. We are praying to You because we know You will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as we pray. Show them Your unfailing love in wonderful ways. By Your mighty power rescue those who seek refuge from their enemies. Guard them as You would guard Your own eyes. Hide them in the shadow of Your wings. By the power of Your hand O Lord, destroy those who look to this world for their reward. But satisfy the hunger of Your treasured ones. May their children have plenty. Because they are righteous, they will see You. When they awake, they will see You face to face and be satisfied.

    Heavenly Father,
    We lift up our dear brothers and sisters in Christ in Sierra Leone who are ministering to Your Body and to the lost in their beloved country. We pray for Pastor Sonnel as he directs this branch of the Lulu Tree in West Africa in his local community, in his home with Mommy Christiana and their children, and in the remote villages he oversees– that He would be guided by Your wisdom, strength, and the power of Your Holy Spirit. We pray You would continue to raise up men and women of faith to come along side him and establish churches in the remote villages. We praise you for his fellow shepherds Pastors Daniel, Ezekiel, Dominique and Pastor Bai who are shepherds after Your own heart. We pray you would bless and strengthen and provide for each one of them and for those whose names we do not know. We pray for the cell group leaders in the remote villages to be filled with the power of Your Holy Spirit to minister to the flocks you have called forth and that you would add to these flocks. We pray that you would raise up and annoint teachers to feed the sheep on Your Word so they may grow in the grace and knowledge of YOU. We pray for provision for the churches to be built and equipped for the building up of the Body of Christ. We pray for the fivefold ministry leaders of Ephesians 4 to be raised up and equipped to serve their communities in Sierra Leone as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13 The harvest fields are white, but the laborers are few– we ask that You, O Lord, would raise up laborers to come alongside the leaders you have appointed so that many would come to know their Savior and receive eternal life and hope.

    My husband would like to share the following verse with Pastor Sonnel and his fellow pastors:
    “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2

    “He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him. Long live the king! May the gold of Sheba be given to him. May the people always pray for him and bless him all day long. May there be abundant grain throughout the land, flourishing even on the hilltops. May the fruit trees flourish like the trees of Lebanon, and may the people thrive like grass in a field. May the king’s name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun shines. May all nations be blessed through him and bring him praise. Praise the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does such wonderful things. Praise his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and amen!”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭72:12-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Prayer and praises for South Sudan refugees:

    Heavenly Father,
    We thank you and praise You that YOU have led the Lulu Tree into the Adjumani refugee camp to partner with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We pray that You would continue to bless and equip Pastor Santos with grace, energy and strength as he unifies the Body of Christ in the refugee camp. We ask You to bless him mightily in Jesus name for the apostolic work he is doing in the refugee camp and in returning to South Sudan to strengthen the churches. Please provide for all his needs and make a way where there is no way– please answer his many prayers in Jesus name! We thank you that you have sent Pastor Emmy and other Lulu pastors and leaders to walk alongside Pastor Santos and we pray you would bless them with great wisdom, discernment and anointing as they obey Your calling. We pray you would bless, equip and guide the pastors and leaders in the churches in these camps by the power of Your Holy Spirit. That the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace would prevail for the building up of the Body of Christ. We pray that the enemy would be bound from his schemes of disunity, discouragement, and despair and that Your leaders would stand firm in You and Your Word. We pray that you would grow these churches in the grace and knowledge of You. We ask that You would anoint Your pastors and teachers to feed the flocks by the unfolding of Your Word which gives light. We ask this in Jesus mighty name! We pray that You would bless the women and people who have received microloans– that You would bless the work of their hands and multiply their success in whatever they set out to do. We praise you for the Jajjas who are newly saved and we pray that each seed would go into good soil and bear much fruit for the rest of their lives! We pray that You would provide for these women’s needs, heal their broken hearts and bodies, hear their prayers, and build their faith through Your answers and Your Word. We pray against depression and discouragement over these women and that their lives would be like watered gardens because of Your love and care for them through the Body of Christ and through gifts of miracles.

    We pray for peace in South Sudan so that these displaced ones may return home. We thank you that– “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness…” Jeremiah 31:2 We ask that in good time they will be able to return to their own territory. In the mighty name of Jesus, for whom NOTHING is impossible– we ask these requests!

    God bless Pastor Santos and the Lulu Team as they minister to Your Body of South Sudan!

    I pray Father that marriages really would be strengthened, chains would be broken (even from generations of hurt), and new lives would be born in front of us. Please rescue all of the moms and men and families from any darkness and make them victorious in You, and show the world Your great love through their redeemed lives and the way they love one another in You. Thank you, Daddy. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
