    3. Call the church office during office hours with your prayer request (651-774-0344) or e-mail it to Judy Kline: judy@first-covenant.org.

    Make sure you include your name and contact information and indicate if you would like the request to be shared only with the Ministry Team or if you would also like it to be on the Prayer Line.

    Prayer for the Persecuted Church - May13, 2015 - Recruitment starts when they are children - 11,12, 13 years of age. Members of the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (FARC) are continually seeking to lure young people from throughout Columbia to join their communist movement. FARC especially targets the youth from poor rural areas. They tempt them with promises of a regular salary and assuring them that they can still attend church if they join FARC. In truth FARC is totally at odds with the Christian faith because they pursue equality through violence and teach the principles of Marxism. These youth are isolated from their families and are closely guarded so they do not leave. Please pray for wisdom and protection for the youth who live in the Red Zones of Columbia that they not be lured and deceived into becoming members of FARC.

    In these areas it is best to not be known to be a pastor. Pastors risk their lives every time they go out to minister. More than 40 pastors from a single denomination were murdered in south western Columbia in a single year. Please pray for these pastors and their church members, that their infrequent gatherings for worship be protected from attacks and that their worship be rich with Christ's presence. Thank you for your prayers.
