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.

    Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
    I pray that the money needed to repair the tractor will come in due time. Thank you that there is a tractor available to help cultivate rice, and please supply the repairs and bless all those who are doing good for you. In Jesus name, Amen.

    • June 5, 2019

      Amen my dear sister. I am happy to report that the Lord provided the exact amount we needed to fix the tractor! He is so faithful. Bless you.

    How joyful are those who fear the Lord-all who follow His ways! You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be! Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home. Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table. That is the Lord’s blessing for those who fear Him. Psalm 128:1-4

    We praise You Oh Lord, for Your promises! We Believe what You have said and we stand on Your Word!! All these things will be done for us because You are Faithful and True!! We give all praise and glory to You through the Name above all names. The name of Jesus.

    “Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is his name—and his son’s name? Tell me if you know! Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection. Do not add to his words, or he may rebuke you and expose you as a liar. O God, I beg two favors from you; let me have them before I die. First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭30:4-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    There is no one like You God! You are indeed our shield and our protector. You know what we need more than we do. You some know what tomorrow holds. I ask You today to fill every need and do so in a way that all people will know that You are our God, that You are in control of all things and that You love Your children and will provide for them abundantly as we obey Your commands and walk alongside You. Cause the peace that You have given us to shine through and draw others to You. Forgive us God for ever doubting You and Your Word. Increase our faith and give us courage to proclaim You to this broken world. We will shout Your Name in high, praising You at all times! Thank You for loving us like You do. May we learn to love one another in the same way. It is through the precious and powerful Name of Jesus that we come to You

    Romans 8:37-39
    37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
    39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Lord God, Almighty, Sovereign and all victorious burn these verses that they penetrate the hearts of all the Lulu people that they see You in and through everything so that they be greatly encouraged by living in Your love which is theirs forever. amen

  15. July 7, 2019

    “As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the Lord is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him”: Psalm 18:30

    Praying now – Father thank You that Your Word is truth and Your Word has all power to change our lives and support us no matter where we are or in whatever situation we find ourselves in.

    I ask You to be that shield to the Lulu families, their pastors and workers across the Lulu Tree ministries in our beloved Africa. May the beatitudes you spoke – the blessings come true for each of the families, their children, all the workers, pastors and supporting families.

    May they be pure in heart for theirs is the kingdom of God
    (Bring many to Your Son for salvation. May the Word penetrate their hearts and the Holy Spirit draw them to You. Sanctify them in truth, Your Word is truth. Give them great hope as they trust in Your great love for them.

    In Jesus name – all that He is and all He has done.
    amen

    I pray that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord fully pleasing to him and desiring to please him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God. I pray that you would be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of his glory to exercise every kind of endurance and patience with joy.

  17. July 18, 2019

    Father, I come to You this morning and ask that You fill Emily with Your Spirit as she ministers to and encourages Your people. These are Your people Lord and I am reminded of the words of Psalm that You direct the steps of the godly. That You delight in every detail of their lives. And that it has never been seen that the godly were abandoned or their children begging for bread. Thank You God for providing every need for Your children. Thank You for the women tithing, providing and loaning the money You have given them. The godly always give generous loans and their children are blessings. Provide every need as You have promised to do yet protect them from the pride of “self sufficiency “ that so many have today. Cause them always to remember that their help comes from You alone. Let there be such a difference in Your people that those around them hunger for what they have and seek You. Holy Spirit draw them and light a fire in them that cannot be put out. Cause a great revival to sweep across these lands and for those of us that “have plenty” May we come to rely on You and You alone. You are a Good, Good Father! I praise You for all that You do! Fill our pastors with Your overflowing Words of love and righteousness that they may feed and guide Your flocks. I ask all these things in the mighty name of Jesus.

    • September 4, 2019

      Dear Elaine — Just reading this now and it fills me with tears. YES — may we all be delivered of the pride of “self-sufficiency.” Bless you my sister, for pouring out your love through prayer.

  18. August 30, 2019

    Thank you Father for all Your benefits especially in the specific prayer requests and answer to prayers. Father, You are great and Holy and never run out of resources. Father, You are merciful and full of grace for those who fear, grieve – Let the light of the glorious Gospel fall on all those who are not Yours. We love You Almighty God and worship You with praise and thanksgiving along with others who are lifting up prayers to You. Amen.
