Prayers for Grace

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
James 5:16b

Grace International School opened in 1999 with 176 students. Its mission statement is to enable international Christian workers to remain in their field of service by providing for the needs of their children through an integrated education from a Christian worldview. It now has over 500 students from Kindergarten through grade 12.

Presently, GIS programs include not just core curriculum but also special needs services, fine arts, extra-curricular sports, and ministry opportunities. It also offers support and assistance to home schooling families.

In nine days, the verdict for the legal dispute that the school’s been on will be given. Please be praying for the Final Court decision on July 9th 2013. May the school’s leaders have wisdom and may God be glorified no matter what the decision is.

If you’d like to pray for the school specifically, here are the prayer points:

•   For the Lord’s will to be done and for favour in the court’s verdict on July 9th;
•   For adequate funds to begin construction before the end of 2013;
•   That the Lord would make possible the completion of both high school and middle school buildings by the end of 2014;
•   Specifically, for the equivalent of 100 partners giving $45,000 each. These could be churches, mission agencies, foundations, businesses, and individuals who catch a vision for what the Lord is doing through Grace International School and partner with us to raise the 4.5 million USD needed for this first phase of construction.

Thank you! Bless you.
