Dear Lord, I will praise You and extol You forever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise, for no one can fathom Your greatness. Your Word declares that You are faithful to all Your promises.

Standing on Your promises, I lay my request before You and ask for messengers to be sent to the Saho people with a multitude of them responding to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Let Your kingdom come and Your church be planted among the Saho!

Jesus set forth this principle in Matthew 7:7-8: “Ask and it will be given to you…For everyone who asks receives.” Again He declared in John 14:14, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” And in 1 John 5:14 Your Word says, “If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”

Lord, the Bible clearly states that You are not willing for anyone to perish in his or her sins. So I pray for the fulfilling of your purpose among the Saho. May the light of the gospel dispel the darkness with many receiving Jesus as their personal Savior, and may local churches be scattered through the length and breadth of their homeland.

This prayer is offered for the glory of Your name and the good of the Saho people. Amen.
