Join us in prayer:

Lord Jesus, you are the true King. Thank you for welcoming us back into Your kingdom through your death and resurrection.

Thank You for safe travels so far for the Helges.Thank You for each and every individual, group and congregation who opens their doors to hear about what You are doing in the Czech Republic. Strengthen and encourage them as they share the Good News with those around them.

Guard and protect all who travel, especially the Helges as they continue their home service journeys. Give them health. Send Your angels around them.

As we enter into the season of Advent, fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, on what He has already done on the cross, but also on the hope that He is coming again.

Grow little Viktor and all Your children in faith and protect them from all harm. Spread your Gospel even through them as they begin to speak and share smiles of joy. Heal Viktor from his cold.

Finally, Lord, we pray for peace. Comfort those who weep. We pray for the war in Ukraine and everywhere to end. Give peace, O God. Give peace. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.


The Gospel of Christ crucified is being shared because of people like you – through your partnership, one-time gifts and your on-going gifts. Please continue or prayerfully consider supporting God’s mission in the Czech Republic by giving financially. If you already support this mission, thank you!
